White Flags Up to Raise Awareness Against Suicide
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - A group of Kirkwood students took a stand against suicide today. They lined the lawn outside Iowa Hall with 100,100 tiny white flags.The flags gave students a visual message showing the number of college students who die by suicide each year.
"Its important to let students know that theres services out there so they don't have to go this way, so this number of flags doesn't increase," Jerad Nylin, Kirkwood Student.
This suicide prevention ties into Mental Health Awareness Week.
