It’s far too common that someone has a connection to suicide. Whether you’ve personally been affected by it, or know someone who has, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. In order to make this message apparent to WHS and the town of Wethersfield, National Honors Society is hosting a suicide prevention walk at the school on May 4th. Check in begins at 9am, and the walk starts at 10am.
The walk will be held at the WHS track, with a table for registration. There will be a table where each attendee can pick out beads to wear during the walk that relate to their connection to the cause. There will be several colors that represent several different circumstances and associations to suicide. There will be a time during the opening ceremony where attendees will be asked trade beads with another person, as a representation of support.
Sometimes all a person need is to know that there is someone out there who cares about them, and who is willing to help them. Our goal for this walk is to provide everyone with a sense of security and unity.
Come out and walk to show support to others, but most importantly to yourself!
