    Thanks for sharing your comedy and personal story. Really needed when discussing a subject of such tragedy and sadness. It’s a very hard subject for me personally, so some humor helped break the coldness a bit. Wish you continued success.

    Hello Bernie! It really was a fantastic testimony! I really enjoyed the way the suicide awareness training was presented. I appreciated the humor you brought in lieu of what would have been a terrible power point presentation. I am so happy for you that you made it through your past to become who you are today. Always keep working! 🙂

    Hi Bernie! Thank you for sharing your unique methods of prevention through the use of comedy. I really enjoyed the training today and I appreciate you allowing us to see into your personal life to achieve our mission. We need this same training for our youth as well.

    Thank you so much for having the courage to share your life experiences with us. Sometimes people feel like they have the weight of the world on their shoulders, or are going down the wrong road and can’t find the exit. They need to know that others have been there and it’s okay to talk about it. Thanks for keeping it real.
