Ok, do you wanna grab a drink or something tonight
Kassie what’s wrong
I’m just sad I guess
Why? What’s going on?
I just don’t know y I’m here
Why you’re where?
Because you’re needed and have a purpose
God has a plan for you, and you’re going to do amazing things
I don’t believe in god Sidney
Ok, then the universe
I don’t think so
Well I know so. You bring so much joy and happiness to everyone around you. I wish you could see yourself like the rest of us do.

Kassie that’s not true. You have so much to live for
You’re over halfway through college and will have a degree, you’ll be able to be a
pediatrician like you’ve always wanted.
There are so many people who love you and are here for you

Hello this is Sidney in dorm 518. I am requesting a welfare check on Kassie Grant. I don’t know what dorm she is in but I have reason to believe she is a danger to herself.
Thank you for reaching out. An officer will reach out to you shortly.
This is really important guys
Thank you for your patience as we help other students. A guard will respond as
soon as they can.
Thank you for texting the campus security line. This is Officer Blair. How many I
assist you tonight?
Officer Blair I was talking to fellow student Kassidy Grant and she seems to be in a
bad mindset and I want someone to check on her ASAP
What dorm room is she in, and what leads you to believe she needs help this
She is texting me saying she doesn’t think she belongs on this Earth anymore and that
she doesn’t understand why she’s here.
What dorm room is she in, ma’am?
I don’t know. She won’t tell me. I don’t even know where she is. She told me I couldn’t
OK. Thank you for reaching out, I will go check on miss Grant.
Okay please hurry I’m really worried
You have been disconnected from your text session with campus security. To
discontinue texts, please text STOP. For help, text HELP.

Kassie are you there?
Sid I’m fine
Where are you? Can I come over?
No I want 2 b alone
Bc I’m not worth it
Do you know why you ARE worth it? Can I tell you?
You are an intelligent, beautiful young woman that adds so much to this world. Your
smile can brighten anyone’s bad day, and I wish it would brighten yours too. This
world can be dark, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I know it’s rough
now – but it gets better. I promise. We just need to hang in there for the brighter days
Do u mean it
With all of my heart, Kass!! You are the highlight of so many people’s days, it’s unreal. I
try to be more like you every day. The world needs more of you. How would people
know what to aspire to if you weren’t here leading by example? You make the world a
Kassie? I really mean it.
Kass? Are you there?
Sry an officer is here
It is okay. Take your time.
They r doing a welfare check on me
Ya I know u told them cuz I didn’t tell anyone else
Kassie I promise I am only trying to make sure you’re taken care of
I wouldn’t do anything to hurt you or betray you.
You know that right?
I just wanted to make sure you are okay
The officer just left
How’d it go?
Sid y did u tell
Because I love you so much, my friend. You deserve the best, I’m sorry the world isn’t
giving that to you right now. But I want you to be around for when it does
I didn’t know u cared so much
Kass I do and so many others do too. You are worth it.
U really mean it?
I really do
Can u come over
I thought you’d never ask. I’m on my way. What dorm?
See you in 10

Good morning, how are you?
That’s awesome! Did you get some sleep?
Ya been sleeping really gud
That is amazing Kassie
The new meds are making it ez to sleep
What about going to classes? Are you able to focus better?
Ya. I guess I have ADHD which makes it hard 4 me 2 focus. I didn’t know that I had
it. The meds make it better
Kass I am so happy for you
Sid I wouldn’t be here if u didn’t come over last weekend
You would have done the same for me
U saved me
You are worth saving
Making me go 2 talk 2 someone was the best thing any1 has ever done 4 me
I’d do it a million times over if I had to my friend
U don’t think I’m crazy
Why would I think you were crazy????
Cuz I have mental problems
Kass mental health is SO important. It is just as crucial to take care of yourself
mentally as it is physically. I am PROUD of you for opening up and seeking help. That
is so brave.
Sidney… thank u
Love you Kass
