Jean Reece Posted 5 months ago JD Schramm: Break the silence for suicide attempt survivors This is the most brave talk I have seen on TED. Your courage gives me the resolve to try to do better, to put aside my own embarrassment or shame about my own demons and reach out to others as you have done. I imagine other suicide survivors will come forward inspired by your example. If you didn't before, you certainly have a reason to live now - we need you. One thing I've always wondered because of a dream I had about plunging to my death in an elevator - what were your thoughts after you jumped but before you hit the water? Do you remember them? How about when you realized you had survived? What I am getting at is - did you change your mind on the way down, after what you believed was the point of no return?
