Powerful and real responses from students and teachers asked to describe suicide in their own words. It's a class project one Columbus North Senior is taking very seriously.

According to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention, the CDC says overall suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S and it's the second leading cause from kids just 10 years old to college-age young adults. An average of 123 people people kill themselves every day.

Hunter Spalding joins us this morning to explain a series of videos he's creating to start the conversation of suicide and why, especially during suicide prevention week. This message needs growing support.
