Giving a Voice to the Silence offers positive angles to the issue that faces those with mental illness. Living with Schizo-Affective Disorder and being able to share my experiences with others, is the best way I know how to pay it forward. Life can be difficult, my goal is to bring a bit of hope to a place where many feel there is none.

Good Riddance Day

I wish I had known about this last month, it is a great idea and one that I hope will catch on to become an annual tradition. (At the end of this post I have included the video by Green Day entitled, "Good Riddance (The time of your life)"



Every year as New Year's approaches, conversations turn to what we will do better next year, what new habits will be started and the hope that we will forget mistakes we've made. In New York City, the answer has been found. The Times Square Alliance, held an event on New Year's Eve called, Good Riddance Day. The idea is for people to shred a list of their bad memories or mistakes that occurred during 2007, getting rid of old baggage and be ready to start with a clean slate in 2008.

What better place than Time Square to start fresh?
