Jeremy McKinnon and the suicide sign. Ive been real excited to post this photo and I’m glad the time has finally come to do so. Jeremy here is the singer of a band called A Day To Remember and the way this photo came to be is one of my favorites. Okay, so pretty much it all started with my good friend Adam. I’ve known Adam for years now and he has always been extremely encouraging. Aside from being an all around rad dude, he also works closely with bands like the one Jeremy here is in. One day Adam just hits me up out of the blue and says “gonna come find you tomorrow with Jeremy. Have the suicide sign”. When Adam sent me this he was in Canada so at first I was a bit confused. After asking a few questions I found out that a band called Linkin Park was playing a show on the tour I was on and they had personally requested for Jeremy to be there. Adam was asked by Jeremy to document his experience and so they were both flying to meet up with the tour I was on to make this happen (hope I haven’t lost you guys with all this talk). Fast forward to the next day and just like he said, Adam found me and introduced me to Jeremy. The whole thing couldn’t have gone any better if we had wanted it to. Chemistry was rad and just after a few minutes of hanging this photo you see here was taken. I’m beyond grateful to both Jeremy for wanting to be part of this and to Adam for just spreading the word about this project. What started out as just a cardboard with some words has slowly taken a life on it’s own and I couldn’t be more stoked. Really blessed to have the friends and support that I do, thank you all so much.

I’ve been extremely busy these last couple of weeks and will continue to be for a large portion of the upcoming months. I don’t know how often I will get to post on this profile considering my new crazy tour schedule, but I wanted to leave you all with this. If there is any proof that life can change in the flip of a coin is this image right here. I woke up today bummed out and I’m going to bed having met an unbelievably, sweet, uplifting girl named yelyahwilliams . Sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to (for example I think this image is not exactly all in focus) but that doesn’t mean the outcome of the situation won’t be positive. Watching all day people come up to this young lady asking for photos, and seeing her each and every time respond with a smile or hug absolutely took me back. Many would say that it’s easy to stay happy when you have so much attention, but I would argue differently. It is (at least for me) very heavy and tedious to stay happy after meeting so many people and hearing about their problems/stories. Watching Hayley respond to everyone with such kindness reminded me that being happy is a choice; You always have a choice. A choice to think about the bad or the good, a choice to walk towards brighter light or lie in the dark. The suicide sign project has never been about telling people what to do. I started this project to encourage people to think differently, to think happier; to remind them that if given time, things do change.
Thanks for reminding me of all of those things today miss, it was truly a pleasure meeting you.
