Super Heroes of The Week



Thank you to Barbara Anne Cookson for this amazing piece for episode 20 of SuperHero LIVE! recorded in Abbot, Maine, at the headquarters for the JD Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide prevention through education and support.

The work we do is often difficult and most of the time we don’t know when we have saved a life. We are truly honored that Barbara Anne chose us to be super heroes, but more importantly, honored that this young man was willing to come forward and let us know we did help. We are connected in a way that doesn’t “show “ and is hard to “see”. It’s amazing when you know someone is alive because you helped them through. We are forever grateful that we had the knowledge. Education is so important to help save lives.
