Spken Word: Video of Parents of Suicides

Postby Karyl » Fri Sep 13, 2013 8:33 am

Dear Friends,

Ann Woodly, whose son Justin took his life several years ago, is a member of the POS e-mail group. Ann has created a special video to share with us. She wrote the script using some of the things she'd learned and heard in POS. She received permission from some of the POS members to include their words, and she found a few friends to read the parts for the video trailer. (The link is below.)

Ann, however, doesn't know if the video would appeal to people. If you have a few minutes, pleast watch the video at the link below (with your sound on, of course), and let us know what you think.

The video link: http://vimeo.com/channels/swp


The name of the video, btw, is The Spoken Word.

Hi Karyl,

I think the video is amazing, both honest and heartfelt. I cannot imagine it would not appeal to any and all survivors. I imagine the purpose of the video is to appeal to all, survivors and others alike. I know that it will be difficult for others to watch, but profoundly moving nonetheless.

If I was rich, I would buy a slot on a billboard. It would have a photo of my son with the words, 'Rory - say his name'. That was the heart of the video (for me).

Yes, yes, yes ! Say his name- ask me about him, who was he? What was he like? What did he like to do?
And then please, please don't shy away when my voice catches, when I blink away my tears, or even begin to cry as I remember my beautiful, beautiful boy - Liam James.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.
