For forty minutes Crying like a baby. Bikers,
骑行者 慢跑者 旅客 和跑步者 他们一个个经过我的身旁
joggers, tourists, runners, they went by me
police officers searching for suicidal people went by me twice
I’m standing at the ledge leaning over the rail
with tears flowing down to the waters
and I thought to myself; absolutely nobody cares!!!
and then the voice in my head said” jump now”,
and I did
And the millisecond
that my hands cleared the rail my legs flew over it
it was an instant regret
the depression was wiped from my mind
And all I wanted to do was live,
and I thought it’s too late
当Kevin Hines从金门大桥跳下去的时候 他才19岁
Kevin Hines was 19 when he jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge.
He is one of the many incredible people that
I’ve been grateful to meet over the past
three weeks as I aim to further
understand the complexities surrounding suicide.
And I know I’ve made mistakes.
I know I’ve let people down.
But what happens when you’re given an
opportunity to help make a difference in the world
The backlash against the social media star.
Very popular guy called Logan Paul is in some hot water…
I think he is complete and utter insensitive idiot.
..Taking a break from daily vlogging.
Even he says his latest content was his biggest mistake.
I wanna apologize to the victim, and his family.
It’s time to learn from the past as
I get better and grow as a human being,
I’m here to have a hard conversation
so that those who are suffering can have easier ones.
So I’ve never been so humbled in my life by a single event.
– Were you kind of shocked by it?
I was shocked to discover just how big this is.
You’ve never known anybody that killed themselves?
No-one no one.
That was that was that was part of the problem
Just my ignorance on the subject.
But in Ohio where you come
from it’s the second leading cause of death
And I know while I’m not able to solve the problem by myself.
I want to be a part of the solution.
And that solution began across the country in New York City
We sat down with Dr. John Draper,
director of the National Suicide Prevention lifeline.
We have to change the conversation publicly
from just focusing on
Suicide and how something bad is happening,
and say’What do we do about?’
Help people understand
that the first thing they need to do is
reach out and talk to somebody when they’re feeling in despair
because you’re not alone with anymore
they’ve done studies with people who are experiencing any kind of pain including hanging off a cliff.
You could hold on a lot longer if somebody is right there with you.
I think as a society,
as human beings, we just have to be more compassionate and that includes me too.
That’s something I’m learning along this journey, and something else that Dr.
Draper told me were the 5 Steps
that anyone can take to help prevent suicide.
步骤1：很简单——问 问你自己 问其他人
Step 1 is simply just Ask. Ask yourself, ask others
Are you thinking about suicide.
And I know that sounds like a daunting question
but literally that question can save lives.
Step 2: accordingly would be to listen.
Be present, don’t make any judgments.
And then Step 3 would be, be there for them even after you’ve already asked
because dependability is key.
步骤4 帮助他们联系 无论是朋友
Step 4 is then help them connect, ah whether it’s with a friend,
a family member or a local suicide hotline therapist.
But help them reach out to someone so they don’t have to deal with this alone.
最后 步骤5 时刻注意他们
Lastly, step 5 is just checking on them,
show them that you care.
Call them up say”hey
“I want to make sure you’re okay”
“can I check in with you over the next few days?”. So one of the things that is so important about reducing stigma
is getting stories out there about people positively coping with suicide.
Do you guys know anyone I
could talk to with the lived experience of suicide Absolutely,
we have quite a number of people
that we could deliver over to you, yeah.
That’d be great.
就这样 我们接触到了Kevin Hines
And that’s how we got introduced to Kevin Hines
17年前 Kevin从金门大桥上一跃而下 得以获救
17 years ago Kevin jumped off of the Golden Gate Bridge and survived.
当其他人听到这些故事时 他们会说 或许我可以抗过去 不会自杀
These are individuals whose stories when people hear them, they say”you know, maybe I can get through”.
As opposed to hearing the stories when people have it.
嗯 那些 太不幸了
an-an- and those… unfortunately,
those the stories that we’ve heard before.
Now we’re hearing more and more stories
of people being more open about it.
As I was saying before, Logan,
for every one person that dies by suicide,
there’s 287 other people that think seriously about it, but don’t.
Those are stories, again, that have not been told.
If we told those stories of people who got through it
as opposed to one who didn’t,
imagine what kind of influence that would have on people’s behavior.
When I found out
that one in six high school kids seriously think about suicide.
That’s that’s stunning yeah, this is such a common problem
Logan all I want Was
for one person to look me in my eyes
说 嗨 你现在还好吗？
Say”hey kid are you okay”?
I am so grateful to be alive And I’m grateful today.
For every millisecond I get to breathe
Cuz it was almost all ripped from me by me.
What’s one thing you would have said
to your younger self to the Kevin who was?
Sitting on the bus
如果是另一个你坐在你旁边 而非那些评头品足 嘲笑你的人
if you were next to you and instead of the guy who pointed and laughed
你会说什么 我会把我的手搭在 [哽咽]
What would you say I would just put my hand on the sh.
I’ll just put my hand on my shoulder
然后我会说 我在这里和你一起 我陪你
and I would just say”I’m here for you, I got you”
We need to be a society
that comes togather for every person in the community that’s going to hell
and in order to do that every person that’s going through hell.
Whatever hell has to be honest about their pain and
If they’re gonna be honest about their pain We are going to collectively
Answer the call and be there for that individual because
if you don’t see beauty and the next person you meet
You’re not looking hard enough
You’re incredible dude this is an honor for me.
It’s an honor for me too
From this point on I want to make
an effort to contribute and immerse myself in the conversation
So I’m pledging to donate 1 million dollars to various suicide prevention!
organizations with the first
$ 250,000 going immediately to the National Suicide Prevention lifeline,
so they can increase their capacity to help those in need
For anyone watching I want you to know
you are not alone and most of the time crisis passes
So if you or anyone you know feels
alone or trapped I encourage anyone to call
or even text a suicide or crisis hotline
both of those numbers are below and although.
This is a tough conversation.
It’s important because things can and will get better
It’s time to start a new chapter in my life
as I continue to educate both myself and others on suicide
I’m humbled and thankful to say
This is just the beginning….
you’re not alone. we’re here with you forever.
