  2. Wow, Lenny, thanks for all the information. I had no idea that suicide is now responsible for more deaths than car accidents. That's quite stunning.

  3. Thanks so much for letting us know Lenny. You are such a supportive writer to the writing community.

    And you always share such interesting (though these are sad) facts in your posts. You must spend lots of time on them.

    Hope school & fall is going well for you. Hope you blog more often. I miss seeing your posts.

  7. Wow, those are shocking facts about suicide. It's really sad when someone takes their own life. It can make the people left behind wonder if they could have done something different and stopped the person from doing it.

    I'm so excited for Sarah and Justine's books! They are both going to be awesome reads.

    I'm going to advertise the auction and maybe buy something?

  9. Congrats to Sarah and Justine.

    Really sad stats. There shouldn't be any reason that a young person should want to kill themselves but sadly there is. Thought-provoking post.

  12. Hi Lenny - it was very Lucky Me that won Justine's book over on Sharon Mayhew's blog!! Sorreee - just need to buy a Kindle now.

    Great supporting friend you are ...

    I have links with suicide .. and I've been on three train or underground journeys recently .. and three suicides occurred - it's desperately sad - such a good cause.

    All the best .. Hilary

  16. Hi Lenny! I am a new follower, and your blog is pretty cool. It is amazing that someone kills him/herself every 45 seconds. Also very sad.

  17. Hey Lenny! I am finally logged into my hacked blog. So that means I can visit you. I am doing this too. Our family knew a young guy who hung himself a month before his high school graduation. He was smart and very talented too. (He did a self portrait of himself that looked like a photograph.) Anyway, you're the coolest of the cool! *waves*
