SHRED TEEN SUICIDE

A Bold, Beautiful Interpretation in Support of SHRED TEEN SUICIDE.

In grammar, the semi-colon serves a useful but sometimes misunderstood purpose; it directly links one independent clause– one sentence – to another, creating a fuller, deeper thought.  Each side could stand alone, and the second does not have to follow the first, but the author has made a conscious decision to relate the two, and both sides are stronger for their link. Given its unique function in grammar, the semi-colon has come to represent a choice to continue for those who may have considered giving up.  

The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, Inc. (SPTS) is a non-profit community organization dedicated to increasing awareness and reducing the stigma of suicide through specialized training programs and outreach resources that empower teens, parents and educational leaders with the guidance and skills needed to help those at risk of suicide build a life of resiliency.  SPTS was founded in 2005 by two Monmouth County fathers who each experienced the devastating loss of a teenage child by suicide.  The mission of SPTS is to reduce the number of youth suicides and attempted suicides by encouraging public awareness through the development and promotion of educational training programs.  Annually, it is estimated that SPTS directly serves 236,000 individuals.

Designed by Denise Cox, this striking  cuff was inspired by her young friend, Grace, who made the choice, at 16, to continue her story, and now chooses to help others through the work of SPTS. An elegant alternative to the tattoo so many in the movement have employed, the piece makes a bold statement: Pause.  Reflect.  Affirm.  Continue.  Cast in the warmth of precious metal, it expresses the wearer’s understanding that “In darkness we find light; in sorrow we find ourselves.”
