    in Film

    Jacqui Blue is back with us on #WoMRadio because last week was not enough to share her upcoming film "I Chose Life: Stories of Suicide & Survival". This is an independent feature documentary film being made by this internationally acclaimed independent filmmaker. This film's focus is on suicide and survival with a strong message of hope through relatable stories that are real and raw as told through the voices of suicide survivors and those left behind.The main focus of our film and what sets it apart is that we are  talking to real people about their real life experiences and how it’s personally affected them, instead of talking to the so-called and self proclaimed textbook experts, (many of whom have never actually been suicidal themselves).


    Suicide survivors and those left behind by a loved ones suicide share their stories of loss and how or why they chose life in the aftermath. Join us on February 4th at 10amPT/1pmET and ANYTIME in archive for the second part of this very important, thought provoking and empowering conversation.

    SixEyes - News - Imprisoned NFL Running Back Lawrence Phillips Commits Suicide

    in Current Events

    Ex-NFL running back Lawrence Phillips, who was convicted in Los Angeles and San Diego counties for attacks on girlfriends and running down several people with a car, was found dead today in his prison cell in an apparent suicide.


    According to the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the 40-year-old former Baldwin Park High School standout was found “unresponsive in his cell” at 12:05 a.m. by staffers conducting security checks at Kern Valley State Prison in Delano.


    “He was transported to an outside hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 1:27 a.m.,” according to a CDCR statement.


    Phillips, who played for the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers during a three-year NFL career, had been housed in an “administrative segregation unit” cell since April 2015, when he allegedly killed his cellmate.


    Phillips was being prosecuted in Kern County on a first-degree murder charge for allegedly strangling 37-year-old Damion Soward.


    Phillips, who was a top running back at the University of Nebraska, had been serving a 31-year sentence for his Southern California crimes, including a 2005 conviction in San Diego for choking his ex-girlfriend into unconsciousness.


    In Los Angeles County, Phillips entered a no contest plea in December 2000 to one count each of inflicting corporal injury upon a cohabitant and making criminal threats against his then-live-in girlfriend.


    Phillips was convicted in October 2006 of seven felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon for aiming a car at a group of boys and young men after an August 2005 pickup football game near the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.


    Three people were struck by the car, and a fourth young man was injured when the car struck a bicycle which then hit him.

       I have been in a place where nothing mattered. Noting was important and there was no one there for me. Well that is what one thinks. There is always someone even if it is the suicide hotline. Just like stopping drinking one day at a time. There is alwasy a place to go to find people to talk with. Sometimes that is even better then being in a bad relationship. 


       Where is spirit and where is God?  To many people arer looking for aliens for the help now which is even worse.
