Founder Jamie TworkowskiShares New Blog“In Response To 13 Reasons Why”Read it now, here:Melbourne, FL – April 27, 2017 – To Write Love on Her Arms founder and New York Times Best Selling Author Jamie Tworkowski has shared a new blog titled “In Response To 13 Reasons Why.” The post, which has already been shared 9,000 times via Facebook and Twitter, reacts to the new Netflix original series that tells the story of a young girl who chooses to end her life and leaves behind a set of tapes explaining what led to her decision. In the post, Tworkowski reflects: “While we wish that the creators of 13 Reasons Why would have been more careful in how they chose to tell the story, we are thankful for the good that is coming as a result of this story being told. We’re glad people are talking about mental health and suicide.“He goes on to offer his support for those who have chosen not to watch the show in light of their own recovery efforts, as well as those who watched and themselves felt triggered by the events portrayed. Tworkowski concludes with this hopeful reminder:“As folks around the world continue to debate and discuss this fictional story, we hope you will remember that your true story is truly important. The things we hoped for Hannah, we hope them now for you – that your story would be rich with characters who know and love you, who fight for you instead of fighting you, people who remind you that you’re priceless.Life is worth living. The best is yet to come. Let’s keep going.“To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
