When I was 12 years old my dad died of cancer. Weed seemed to be the only painkiller. I went from using weed daily and living in a nice house to using lots of weed and cocaine each day and living in a house without warm water or even a carpet. I got a lung illness and the doctor told me to choose between life and death. I chose life but it was still a dead end story, until Jesus came into my life. He turned my world upside down, and raised me up on his shoulders. I am a changed man!

Well, I'm not used to talking about this with people I do not know and that most likely I will never know but maybe it will help me vent. (I'm from Chile and I speak Spanish so here I am using a translator). <br /> Well, recently I went through some very traumatizing things. My parents work with weapons and some very scary things happened and they caused me to have nightmares. That's when I started to cut myself. <br /> I told this to a very special person to me and he helped me a lot and for 5 months I have not cut myself. I read my Bible sometimes and it helps me to move forward. <br />

Hello, I want to tell those who do not know Jesus, to search for Him. If you do not know how to look for Him, and ask someone who knows Him to show you how, for the path to Christ and easy. 1 John 5:4 "For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith." God has a purpose in our lives, you are not here by chance, and to God you are very important, and the wickedness of the world is the lack of God's love! Be happy with what you have and what you are because God loves you; Love God and you will learn to love and to love even those who hate you, and you will see that this God is capable of wondrous miracles. LOVE GOD!

Every time I see this movie my heart breaks and I can't stops the tears. Knowing there are hundreds, or thousands of people, young people with this sadness and loneliness and so few people who actually care about them. <br /> I went through depression, self-harm, even when I was going to church. I was faking it, as the movie says. <br /> I want you to know that every struggle is worth it! I know it's hard, and you may think impossible, but it is more than possible to our God. <br /> Stay calm, trust him; He is the only one who can fill all this emptiness. His time is perfect.<br /> 175 words is nothing to thank God for taking a look in me and make that change in my life.<br /> KEEP PRESSING FORWARD. <br />

<br /> Hello everyone. I'm Chilean and I can't help feeling alone. The film opened my eyes to the evil of poking fun at people. I had begun to change my ways before even seeing the film, but now that I have it's important to treat people right. No one deserves to be treated badly. If you feel bad and want to talk to someone, I am here.

A year and a half that my brother took his life. I can't get over it; it's as if I had died too wondering if I had done anything that could have changed that ...WHAT IF?! But that doesn't matter, because it's too late. Nobody listens to me. What does it take to be heard? Sometimes I think of doing the same thing, I feel so alone, lost, without help, maybe you guys don't even understand what I'm writing. But it's important to talk to someone, before it's too late, so you don't have to wonder What If?

I have severe depression and I have turned to pills and self harming every time. I hate doing it but it's the only thing that honestly helps me. When I watched this movie, I realized I am not the only one out there like this and I still have suicidal thoughts and still self harm but I just can't stop. I really wish I could. I have been bullied and used so many times I just don't want to be in this world anymore but I know I have to continue trying.

Life is not a fairytale... life brings you down every time she can... I look at Jake and see myself for different reasons but what the movie didn't show is the guilt consuming you and the only thing you think about when you close your eyes is "why I wasn't there?," and his family has to blame someone! Guess who takes the fault?! He O.D'd cause he felt alone and I wasn't there cause my gf broke with me and I took some "me time." Take me advice... don't !!! Everybody leaves you sooner or later!!

Even if I'm a non-believer, "To Save A Life" is my favorite movie because it made me better. This movie's not only about faith, it's above all about how you treat others, how you want to treat others and also how YOU are and want to be treated. To answer at these questions, I agree with Rachel's challenge which could be summed up with 2 words: KINDNESS and COMPASSION. Finally, thanks to this movie I've gone beyond my distrust of religions and I paid attention to some of them.<br /> THANK YOU TEAM OF "TO SAVE A LIFE" MOVIE, I'm sure you saved so many lives with this movie <3<br /> <br /> "Believe in life, love and music", Sam.

I'm from Ireland. I first watched this film 2 years ago, with a group of friends. It had inspired us to create a group called 'Safe Place' for young people to come to and talk and just hang out without being judged constantly for their appearance, their skills, past, capability in life, anything. Myself and my friends had all experienced suicides be it a close friend, family or just someone we knew of. The group we started wasn't about finding God, it was about finding a safe place, friends. I personally think if it wasn't for us unexpectedly coming across this film, myself and others might not still be here today. This film is inspirational and has helped us make a change in our community.

HELLO I'M FROM BRAZIL. I THINK YOU ARE NOT ALONE BECAUSE GOD WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU. NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU DESPISE YOURSELF OR JUDGE, HOW MUCH YOU SAY THAT YOU DON'T--KNOW THAT GOD ALWAYS LOVES YOU AND WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE YOU. WHEN I WATCHED THIS MOVIE I WAS VERY TAKEN BY HOW TEENAGERS KILL THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY FEEL ALONE OR BY PEOPLE WHO JUDGE EACH OTHER EVEN IN THE CHURCH. FOR THIS I DECIDED TO ENTER THIS SITE TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT GOD AND HOW HE CONTROLS ALL THINGS. PLEASE NO CUT OR KILL YOURSELF LIKE ROGER. I HOPE THIS MESSAGE HELPS, AND NEVER FORGET: GOD LOVES YOU.
