Hello, This Bring Change 2 Mind campain commercial has been playing a lot on the T.V. lately, and I could not be happier. I love it! The video of Glenn Close and her sister Jesse is so touching to me, it brings tears to my eyes. Glenn speaks the words I have felt all these years about my Mother and for everyone who suffers from a Mental Illness. The days of shame that burden people with a Mental Illness should be long gone by now. I encourage you to take the time to watch the videos and share them with others. You will be inspired by their strength as much as I am. I couldn't agree more with Glenn Close when she says "the fact that her sister is still here is a testament to her strength as a human being". I can honestly say the same about my Mother, with all her suffering, shock therapy and bouts in the Mental Hospital, she endured, and she never took the easy way out, she fought everyday against her illness and the Stigma. That is why when I need strength to get through certain things in life, I reflect on my Mothers strength and it carries me through. I'm also learning as I go through this life, that "Heroes" as we know them to be, are not the perfect people, they are the imperfect people.
Thanks for visiting,
