"Those kids know so little about life, they don't understand what's wrong with them and what can be done to help -- they're just in pain. They don't want to die, they just want to end the pain. There's a catch phrase: suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. "I'm a nurse and I can remember when we didn't even say the word, cancer. We called it the big C -- and now the awareness is huge, and the funding for research and prevention. My goal is to get rid of the taboo around suicide and get on with prevention."
~Jude Platz (mother who lost her teenage son to suicide)
