Project of the Day: Inspirational words by Scott Pollard
"No One Else Can Play Your Part" is our campaign to support National Suicide Prevention Week (Sept. 8-14) and World Suicide Prevention Day (Sept. 10). There are many ways to get involved, and one option is to purchase our WSPD pack, which includes a shirt, bracelet, poster print, and pack of info cards.
Our hope is that these items will equip you to talk about suicide prevention in your community, so we wanted to share the text you will find on the info cards.
NO ONE ELSE CAN PLAY YOUR PART
This story is a tragedy at times, a comedy some days, a drama safe to say. You will find things and you will lose things in this life. There will be awesome starts and awful endings, but do keep going, because the part you play is sacred. You are something priceless, you and all your fears and dreams. This story seems impossible at times, but there is still some time to be surprised, still some time to live surprises.
So may we live an honest story and may we meet each other in the questions, in the aches and broken places. May we know that it’s okay to ask for help, okay to stop and rest, okay to start again.
Life seems to be a story of holding on and letting go, learning which is which and when. You were made for love and knowing. No one else can play your part.
