This Musician Tattoos the Names of Suicide Survivors among His Fans

Robb Nash is a Canadian rock musician. One day, a young girl handed him a suicide note. She said that she had changed her mind and didn't need it anymore.

So Nash talked to groups of teens, urging them not to make this terrible choice. And so more fans sent in their suicide notes, as well as razor blades and bullets that they had planned to use. Over time, he's received 535 notes from young people who are thinking about suicide.

Nash started tattooing their names on his arm. Now he's got 120 names of suicide survivors on his arm. He tells BuzzFeed:

“I point at my hand and say, ‘Look at my arm. These kids had the same thoughts as you, and they’re still here.’”

Like any irreversible step, suicide should be thought through with a clear mind and surely not in a hurry. In case you think about suicide you should really thoroughly contemplate every little detail of it without any precipitance and you should really take you time, at least 10 to 20 years or even longer... the worst that could happen is that a natural cause of death strikes first...
Unfortunately, people considering suicide are usually in a very emotional state and are very impatient neither having the longanimity nor the wisdom to wait for the grim reaper, whom noone escaped yet.
As i think that his tattoos may reach much more young people that the above arguments, i can only say that i am happy for each young person not taking the final step...
