Teen Posts Notes to Bridge to Prevent Suicides; Already Saved SIX LIVES

posted by Julie - 

How uplifting!  There's a teen in England named Paige Hunter, who wrote dozens of heartfelt notes and posted them to the Wearmouth Bridge in Sunderland in an effort to "offer solace to people facing a mental health crisis."  You see, this bridge is a hotspot for suicides, and the 18 year old decided to try to come up with a way to help people in their time of need.  And it looks like she has succeeded!

The notes (which include messages like "Even though things are difficult, your life matters; you're a shining light in a dark world, so just hold on.") urge people to call "Samaritans" - an emotional support hotline.  And six people have already called because of these notes!

Paige has - rightfully so - received recognition from the local law enforcement for her good deed.  Read more here.
