Powerful Message Targeting Suicide Declares #iChooseToStay


Suicide is a topic that no one likes to talk about, but it’s one that needs to be addressed more often. I lost my brother to suicide when I was 18 years old. It was the worst day of my life. Many of you reading this have had a similar experience witnessing the tragic results of someone who left this earth too soon by their own choice.

In an attempt to raise awareness and proclaim the truth that we want EVERYONE to stay, Nadia Khristean teamed up with singers Monica Moore Smith and Yahosh Bonner, videographer RJ Idos, music producer Becky Willard, and a talented crew of dancers to create an inspiring cover video of the song “Million Reasons” that tells a story of despair and hope.

Nadia’s message to those who watch this video is “#ichoosetostay because there will always be someone who needs to be loved. The more I love those around me, the more I feel loved. What is your reason?”

As you watch this video, think not only of the many you reasons you have to stay and be on the earth at this wonderful time, but think of someone you know who could use a kind word and then tell them how much they mean to you. Enjoy the video!
