The smallest acts of kindest sometimes have the biggest impact.

6th graders at Horizon Middle School took part in creating suicide awareness. 

They spent the afternoon constructing yarn hearts. Attached to the hearts will be a note of encouragement, along with with the number for the Suicide Hotline and other resources for those struggling with suicidal thoughts.

Student Marissa Ternes shares, “All these hearts are different and everyone else is different. We’re not all the same, we don’t go through everything everyone else does. We’re just all different.”

Her classmate August Phillips adds, “It’s very important because even the small things like just making a heart for someone could make their day.”

Some of the hearts will be placed around the community for people to find, the rest will be donated to the Peyton Heart Project, a non-profit dedicated to help end suicide.
