"Gates of Hell"...how can we get it here?
« on: March 09, 2015, 02:16:09 PM »
I don't know about anyone else, but that thread had a phenomenal impact on how I look at my circumstances, and it let me know how NOT alone I am in this walk.
I can't look at the stars they make me wonder where you are.

And if I know you at all
I know you've gone too far

If we are legally allowed to cut and paste threads from there to here, I'd love to see the Telling Children About Suicide and What Do You Want Folks to Know About Suicide threads over here, too.
It's not what happens to you, but what you do with it, that defines your life.

Not to mention the responses to Trish's Surviving the Suicide of a Spouse thread.

I've copied and pasted the first 3 pages.  Need to get to bed. Maybe someone will want to pick up where I left off.

Peace,
Trish

I've been re-reading it after not seeing this for a few years and it still packs a punch. What an empowering thread it was/is.

I agree that thread helped me so much. I know some people thought my husband was going to go to hell for ending his life. And I was glad I could quote this message.

Hi everyone, after some discussion among the admin and moderator team, as well as input from a member of the board, WifeLess and I decided to remove the post "Gates of Hell" that was copied from YWBB. Unfortunately it breached YWBB copyright. In addition permission from the members who contributed to it was not received. This was a very tough call since we agreed it was valuable for many members, including both of us.

Take care, Bluebird

Maybe there is a way to rephrase the intent to start something similar here. I understand not being able to copy but the original quote could be posted and WE can do our part and put our stories?

Hi Carey, I think it's a great idea to start a new "Gates of Hell" thread. I would hesitate at copying the entire first post, since the member who posted it can't be asked for permission. If you are interested, perhaps you could get it started and let us know the part of that post that had an impact for you in quotes? Part of the power of it was the very many posts that followed. The best we can do is begin to recreate it for those who are continuing their journey with this board. I for one would contribute.

Take care, Bluebird.

I will be glad to give it a try.  It'll have to be when I'm at home and not here at work but I will. I just feel it had so much value, I hope I can word it well.
