Can we save people who are Googling, “ways to die?”
People Google how to do lots of things– including how to kill themselves. How can we leverage what we know about suicide and the internet to save lives? After my son Charles killed himself, I sold my digital marketing business, started this blog, Emotionally Naked, and used my skills at search engine optimization and content marketing to reach those most in need to help prevent suicide.
Doing this TEDx was a transformative experience
I made the intentional decision to focus solely on enjoying the moment. I didn’t and still don’t think about shares or numbers or anything else other than what the experience meant to me, my family and my tribe here.
When I stared at the big red dot from backstage, I smiled.
Kim, Shiela and I danced (quietly) to work through nervous energy and then I couldn’t wait. I was ready and excited. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity, especially to my friends Jennifer and Andrew Einolf who wholeheartedly believed in my message, to Risa who bought the license and brought TEDx here to Richmond. To my coach Kara Silva and all the other speakers posted below. The ones rimmed in red boxes are the first TEDxGraceStreetWomen and all of our videos uploaded this afternoon on the site. All of the TEDxGraceStreetWomen 2019 videos are here.

I wish I had been able to save my son’s life, if I had only known then…. but I hope with work like this we can save others!!
Thank you Jennifer. And I love that you did this too! I pasted it here to help it show up on google. And it’s hard after to know what we could have done. It takes a while before you get to a place where you can forgive yourself. http://www.zukaslegacy.com/2019/03/how-to-kill-yourself.html?m=1
