Keagan’s Rocks Help Prevent Suicide; Govia Has An Important Message
So I was feeling a little down the other day when one of our loyal B100 listeners stopped by and gave me some decorated rocks. The messages on these rocks immediately made me feel better. They are called Keagan's rocks. Keagan committed suicide and his mom decided to keep his memory alive by hiding rocks around the quad cities with special messages on them to up lift people around the QC. These rocks have a positive message on them as well as the national suicide prevention hotline number. My dad killed himself when I was young and I have been touched by this. We will definitely be participating! Look out for the B100 rocks out there!
Here is a message from me to everyone out there who may be depressed.
Here is the description of the group on facebook.
This is a rock painting group in honor of my son Keagan Belle Isle he lost his battle with depression and died from suicide on April 6, 2017. He also struggled with an eating disorder called anorexia. About 3 weeks after I lost my beautiful boy, I was severely depressed, I went walking with a friend and my dog. My dog stopped and sniffed something, my friend bent down and picked up the rock in the cover photo. The rock said "hello", I felt it was a sign and it really made a huge impact on me. Keagan loved performing random acts of kindness and I thought rock painting would be a great way to honor his memory while also raising awareness of suicide and eating disorders. I would like to be able to pay it forward and maybe impact someone else in need, please join me in brightening the world one rock at a time. Please label the back of the rock by printing the following and sticking to the back of your painted rock: Keagans Rocks facebook-please post -rehide or keep- NEDA helpline 800-931-2237 --National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800-273-8255
