Inspirational Letter from a High School Student.

Hi Jeff, I am a high school senior and I wanted to thank you for speaking at our school. At the beginning of this year I finally got the courage to tell my parents that I have been suffering from depression the past 4 years so they sought counseling for me. Two days after we got into contact with a counselor I was in a car accident and was life-lined to a trauma center. This was September 2nd, by September 4th I was released back home but couldn’t stand by myself due to a severe concussion. On September 6th my 18 year old brother died due to an accidental self-inflicted gun shot wound (he had been drinking and didn’t know the gun was loaded.) All of this made my life a living hell the past month and a half and I will admit, I was becoming bitter, but after hearing you speak today I realized that I shouldn’t be bitter, I should be better. I just wanted you to know that if you didn’t change anyone else’s life today, I know you have changed mine. Thank you. –High School student from Pennsylvania
