Modesto Bee aids suicide prevention awareness

September 17, 2013 

We would like to thank Jeff Jardine and Nan Austin for their recent articles in The Bee regarding the Out of the Darkness community walk held Saturday.

The media in general have been reluctant to cover the topic of suicide – for some, the subject is taboo – and we feel you should be commended for your efforts to help bring suicide “out of the darkness.”

Thank you to everyone who was a part of this event and helped us raise over $40,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.



Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
