Lauren Clark was just a small town girl trying to get through college. With the help of her best friends, Dave, Sarah and Erica, she was really getting somewhere. That was until she discovered Dave's dead body on the floor of his apartment after he committed suicide. Follow Lauren as she tries to cope with her close friends suicide - and watch what happens to those around them when someone takes their own life. 

Did you know that suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans every year? That many who attempt suicide never seek professional care? That there are twice as many deaths due to suicide than HIV/AIDS? That between 1952 and 1995, suicide in young adults nearly tripled? That for young people 15-24 years old, suicide is the third leading cause of death? That according to the World Health Organization, by 2010, depression will be the #1 disability in the world? What about that suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the U.S? Or an average of one person dies by suicide every 16.2 minutes? How about that there are four male suicides for every female suicide?

What about that suicide can be prevented through education and public awareness? Did you know THAT? Now you do. Don't stand by and watch, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

@Abigailz1128 It's fine :) In one way, yes, I could be. (My name isn't actually Lauren :P) This is actually based off of a dream I had, I just kept it going in my mind until it formed into a story. This is basically what would happen to me if and of my friends should commit suicide.
