A slick production it’s not, but this anti-bullying/suicide prevention brochure is by kids and for kids on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota, where there is a terrible youth suicide rate. Kids wrote it, Mother Lauren R. Stanley pulled together the resources for it with the help of two churches and the local lumber yard, and now it’s being distributed to every student at the Todd County Middle School. Nor is the problem confined to reservations; any community can suffer a sudden epidemic of children and teenagers trying to harm themselves. Adults have to take notice and begin intervening at once.
