“Here’s my last Facebook post” …
those words rang true twice this year so far. Both Jay Bowdy and Nakia Venant committed suicide on FB LIVE as family, friends and lurkers sat and watched, helpless. Unaware that there was even an issue.
I was deeply saddened by the events because I had written “One Last Cry”, but never recorded it. I keep wondering what if I had released it … maybe they could’ve stumbled across it on Facebook or youtube or spotify before they made that final, fatal decision. Maybe the lyrics would resonate with them and help them continue to fight for their lives.
Well I won’t sit by and wait any longer. I hope and pray this song will help at least one person continue to fight for their lives and happiness.
“If you hear me, screaming. Help me! I’m pleading” …
