British Teen Posts Uplifting Notes on Bridge and ‘Helps Save Six Lives’
By Good News Network – Jul 22, 2018

*** begin quote ***

An 18-year-old girl’s ingenious idea to attach messages onto a bridge in Sunderland is inspiring those in despair to think twice before jumping.

Paige Hunter wrote more than 40 heartfelt notes and tied them to the railings of the Wearmouth Bridge hoping to provide comfort at a time when it is needed most.

The encouraging words penned by the East Durham College student included: ‘Even though things are difficult, your life matters; you’re a shining light in a dark world, so just hold on’.

*** end quote ***

You have to admire that people can think of ways to prevent suicides without spending huge amounts of money.  Simple yet effective and efficient.  Love it.

Perhaps it should be on EVERY bridge.
