Hello. Bob,

My name is Brittany, and I am a student at a school that you came and talked to this week. For the last couple of years, I have had a difficult time. I’ve been bullied by people I thought were my friends. By guys who as you put it, so graciously thought I was a ‘sex object.’ Before your speech, I had been cutting on my hip to the point that the tiniest scratch would make it bleed once more. And I have thought about suicide. I have tried once before, but I got scared and decided against it until I had worked up enough nerve. I was going to do it soon. But your speech changed that. I realized that I should just find new motivation and that there ARE some people who care about my well-being. When I got home that day, I went and threw away the blade I had been using to cut. I just wanted to thank you for what you said. THIS saved me. Thank you soooo much. I will never forget it. Brittany.




Dear Mr Holmes,

My name is BP, I was in the stands at North Central High School. You wouldn’t have noticed me or seen me, but you had a great impact on me. As a kid growing up I was raped for seven years straight by my brother, and my grandpa sexually assaulted me at the age of 5. I never told anyone and it was all built up, I started cutting, first they were small then they got bigger and deeper, eventually I carved words into my skin. I was at my sisters party one night and everyone had been drinking and they smoked weed, I was raped, I woke up bleeding and covered in bruises. I thought I was pregnant because I didn’t know if he finsished inside me, so I took a small hand full of pills. I was taken to the hospital they said it wasn’t enough to kill me, I was sent to do a rape kit. I had to promise I wouldn’t try it again so I wouldn’t be sent to a mental behavioral hospital. A few months later I was getting bullied really badly here at this school, so I took 16 of my antidepressants, I should have died that night, they only pumped 9 out of my stomach, 7 dissolved. This time I was sent to a mental behavioral hospital, I have BPD (Borederline Personality Disorder) and major depression. I was planning my next attempt, but this time was gonna be my last. Your speech was so inspirational to me, no it won’t help with my problems, but it will help me get through my thouys of suicide. You made me feel like I have a purpose and that I have a reason to be here and that I’m wanted. You will never understand the impact you had on me. You saved me from myself and I just want to thank you. Thank you so much for talking to us, you showed me that there is more to life and it will get better.
                               Sincerely Yours
                                  BP

Dear Bob,

When you came to my school, RCB, I was about to end my life. I did not have anything left to do except take up space in everyone’s daily lives. I felt useless. I was going to end my life on my birthday which is coming up on September 26. I had already prepared to hang myself with my own computer cord It was only a matter of time. On my birthday I asked Christ to save me instead of ending it all.

Your Newest Friend,

David C_____

 

Bob,

I was planning my death a few nights ago, and prior to meeting you today, I cut my wrist twice Tuesday night. However, I’m not the least bit ashamed to say that I will no longer continue to self-mutilate because of you! I’m so grateful that you came to the school today, or I’d have gone through with my decision. All my life, I’ve just wanted to meet someone who showed that they truly care whether I’m alive or if I just disappear suddenly. You, sir, have shown me that there is hope IN CHRIST and staying alive is worth it.

 

Bob,
Thank you so much for coming to school and Franklin County high on Thursday.  Your message opened my eyes and changed my life, thank you so much. Unlike other rallies, your message really hit home because it was built around our generation and the problems of our society today. You know how to reach teens and to teach them a life changing lesson.
After hearing your message, I made the final step of receiving Christ as my savior.
Thank you, again.
Amy

 




Bob,

Hearing your message today at my school has touched me so much. It has made me rethink about all the things I could have done and said to make just one person want to keep pushing forward against the odds. Going to your assembly, I didn’t know what to think, BEFORE YOU CAME TO MY SCHOOL I figured it’d be just another assembly to get me out of class, but instead, God has brought you to all of these schools to preach the message of change in Christ.  And you sure did preach the message I needed to hear. Lately, I’ve been down and thinking nothing is going to work out. God sent you to remind all of us that his plan is bigger, that there is better out there if we keep looking forward. Seeing the pictures of the girl burnt in the car has made me want to become a paramedic/fire rescue, even more, I want to help save people from their dangers, Thank you so much for coming to our school, I hope you can continue to visit more schools, preach the message even more

God Bless,

Samantha

 

My name is Alissa, and I want to thank you for coming to our school today. It was a ton of fun watching you beat everyone, and making us laugh. I mostly want to thank you for what you said- about what keeps you going.

You might have noticed me, or maybe you didn’t, but I was the only 8th grader crying. You might have wondered why I go so emotional during your speech. It’s not because you’re scary, or mean. It’s because I really appreciate what you’re doing. When you talked about that girl, the piano player, whose fingers were amputated by a bunch of glass, and how more teenagers died last year, due to suicide, than all the casualties in the Iraqi war, it really got to me. I didn’t just cry because these were sad stories. I cried because it really hit home.

You see, my friend, Katalina, was adopted. Her mother had made some awful choices and decided that she didn’t want her daughter to suffer because of her. Her adoptive parents loved her very much, and she knew that, but she had always wondered why she was given up for adoption. After about eleven months of searching, they found her mother. They learned about the choices she had made and the mistakes that had cost her so much… And so did a boy at school… This boy had figured out, that Katie was adopted, and told a few of his friends about her mother. But it didn’t stop there. His friends told their friends, and so on, and so on. Until almost everyone in the school knew about it. The group of boys started bullying her. They called her names and said that if her own mother couldn’t love her, no one could. For eight months, they teased her, they yelled at her, they beat her up, and laughed at her. Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore. I was there when she ended her life. I watched her jump from the bridge, and into the water. We were only nine years old. One of the last things she told me, as she stood at the edge, was that if one person had listened. If ONE person, had helped her, things would have been different. Her last words were, “Always Listen.”…

When you talked about how big of a difference ONE person can make, I knew completely hat you meant. If just one person, one teacher, had listened, instead of telling her to ignore them, her story would have ended differently. And not as early…

When you were talking about drunk drivers, and making a choice today, about our future, my mind immediately went to my cousin, Addie’s friend…

Amy was a wonderful wife, mother, aunt, and woman in general. A few months ago, when she was driving home from a family party, her car was hit, head on, by a drunk driver. The Driver, Amy, Her husband, and their 2-year-old son, Aiden, all died. The only survivor, was Aiden’s twin sister, Avie. That one driver’s stupid decision didn’t just take his life. It took this little girl’s family. Avie now lives with my cousin and her family. If that one driver had done the right thing and didn’t drive while under the influence, They would all still be alive. One person. Just one can make a huge difference…

I want to thank you again, for coming to our school, challenging us, making us laugh, and for being such an awesome person. But most of all, I want to thank you for reminding us to Look ahead, not to give up, and to not believe the media. I hope you can come back soon, and I hope someday, I will get the chance to meet you personally. Thank you so much.

~Aliss

 

When you showed the picture of that girl, who was in that car accident my heart sank but I know that if you continue to spread your message across the world we will see a change. Teenagers today are so obsessed with their looks and what other people think of them that they tend to do things that can not only hurt them but others as well. Hearing you talk about how commercials play such a big role in our lives I truly opened my eyes and seen that our world is based on nothing more than drugs and hatred. Although I wish that this wasn’t so its good to know that there is still goodness in the world. Thank you for not only being a HUGE inspiration to me and many of my friends but you have showed our little school many reasons why not to fall to the growing drug and alcohol abusers, seeing the picture of that innocent girl and hearing how she not only had to go through numerous surgeries but lost her friends and may never ever be able to live a normal life again I really know how blessed I am, I cannot thank god enough I look out every day and try to count my blessings, but there are too many too name and each day I continue to be blessed! Continue and keep on keepin on! Thank you for being an inspiration, and I hope that you keep playing volleyball because of your great and it’s  really hilarious seeing you beat teachers and students!! I hope to see you on television soon and remember,

“STAND ALONE, BEAT THE ODDS!!”

Miranda H_______

P.s

I’ll continue to pray for you and hope that your word will reach every heart and everyone will see that they don’t need drugs or alcohol to make them whole. And although I know that commercials don’t always show everything they SHOULD and they do not live up to “Do you promise, to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” your presentation was just another reminder of how God works in many ways. I can’t say it enough THANKS!!

 

Dear Bob,

You may not know this but there is many who do not believe in Jesus, there are many that drink, smoke, and much more, That breaks my heart but I think that today you have caused many to stop and look toward Jesus Christ.

 

Dear Bob,

I really took in what you said, and it motivated me to look forward. I’ll never think of suicide again after what you said today.

I knew you couldn’t do it without the Lord.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!!

**P.S.: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!

 

You have been an Inspiration to many MILLIONS!**

Thanks and God Bless you,

 

Hi Bob,
You visited my school a month ago. I struggled with cutting and suicidal thoughts a lot last year. This year I tried really hard not to cut and even though I had contemplated suicide it would go away when something good happened. I have grown up in a Christian home I was homeschooled up to this January and go to church every Sunday. But I have always doubted my salvation wondering how God could love me why he would want to love me. Two weeks ago lost a journal entry and it was about suicide. The school found out it was mine and I had to talk with my principal. After talking with her I started thinking I couldn’t be saved I wasn’t changed while she didn’t quite agree with me she told me to think about it. Today I found your tract on the floor in one of the classrooms while I have never been bullied I have experienced most of what was talked about in the pamphlet. And then I read what you put to be saved, because of finding the tract I am now for sure saved.

 

Dear Bob,

I had everything planned out. I was going to go home and take a bunch of pills. But when you came and gave that speech it made me think of what’s ahead for eternity. I love your message, you’re amazing.

When I saw your assembly today….I cried…and I got sad but not the depressing, sad the happy sadness you Bob made me realize that I need to be strong and carry on. I need to be here,

Bob, I want you to go every single school across the nation because bullying needs to stop now.

Bullying is becoming a way of life, and life style that is killing other people.

Don’t give up Bob no matter what life gives you

People would call me slut, whore, cunt, and hypocrite. I would go home every night and cry myself to sleep. I cut myself and stopped eating. I even came close to suicide once. tears were streaming down my face I held the pills with shaking hands and I was ready to end it all. ready to get away from all the pain and torment and lies.

Please Bob please don’t stop sharing the messages. Please don’t stop reaching people. Share my story as an inspiration to teens that someone always cares. someone always worries. You reminded me the Savior is always there.

Please share my story. Please

 

Hi Bob,

My name is J.T. Davis, I am a Freshman at Allen County Scottsville High School, you came to my school on November 30, 2012… I just want to say that you have really shown the light to many people in that school including me! I am so thankful you came to our school! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED YOUR MESSAGE! You do may not know this but there is many that do not believe in Jesus, there are many that drink, smoke, and much more, That breaks my heart but I think that today you have caused  many to stop and look toward God. You brought a new thing an exciting thing. I extremely liked how you drew  our attention to you by starting off with the games! That was a marvelous idea, I would like for you to come back down to Scottsville to spread your message more because I can tell you this… Your message was AMAZING! It was sad but true…

Also, Congratulations on your world record!!   I knew you couldn’t do it without the Lord.      NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!! I bet there were times when you wanted to give up but like you said one person can inspire A LOT of people. That is exactly what you have done; I would like for you to know that you have really spoke the truth today and I am glad you did! Hopefully, we could keep in touch and become great friends in Christ and mutually. I know that would be AWESOME to do!

I think God has blessed you… Wait… I know you have been! But Bob, I really would like to ask you questions about how God impacted your life, but I don’t want to take your time or your secretary’s (but I think you answer all of them yourself). If you don’t mind, I would LOVE to hear back from you so I could ask you questions… Or maybe you just reply back with the answers.  Hopefully, you can!

 

Bob, I just want to say God bless you and your family! God has done great things in your life, and I can tell that he has. I hope you can reach another world record soon! Maybe come back to our school, and maybe we can win the next time, instead of being smoked… But you are one of a kind Bob. Thank you so very much! God bless you again!

**P.S.: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!   You have been an Inspiration to many thousand’s!**

 

Thanks and God Bless you,

Dear Bob,

You just recently came to my school, saying that Chandlers Elementary had the best junior volleyball team. Thanks my sis was on the team. She was the only one not wearing black and purple!. You told the school about the commercials and the teenagers being suicidal. And the stories about the two boys and the trash bag, and the girl who killed herself because her name was written on the bathroom wall. Also about the woman who was burned almost to death. How could she be trying to get her burner out of jail!. I literally leaned over to my friend and said: “I wouldn’t do that!” But I was wrong. In the end, you said you were proud to be a Christian. THANK YOU!! Almost everybody today falls away from Jesus, just to be popular. I’m proud to be a Christian too. Whatever gets you first, age(no offense) or other people, DON’T STOP!!!!!!!!!!!  Please don’t stop. You have become my idol. At first, I thought you may have said a few inappropriate things, like with the boy with aids, but now I know that saying that was necessary. People like you and me have to know that. And if we don’t, we’ll end up like that man in jail crying. I had to pretend there was something in my eye the whole time you talked about it. You have totally changed my life. Don’t stop spreading Jesus. Don’t stop being my idol, and don’t stop teaching kids the fun, sad way you do.

A kid from a school touched by your extraordinary and powerful words.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!!

Hi there, my name is Sid, and I go to Franklin-Simpson High School. You played at my school yesterday, and after your matches, I wasn’t expecting you to start talking about suicide. I haven’t tried it, but my family knows that I’ve thought of it. I don’t cut, I don’t drink, I don’t do anything to hurt myself. I’ve made promises to people that are literally around the world. What helps me is a little four word saying. “Never stop, keep walking.” Some people don’t understand this saying, but the right people will. I would greatly appreciate it if you could tell this to every school that you go to. Give these kids that are in pain some hope. Even if it’s just a four word saying because this saying is what keeps me going every day. Thank you.

– A thankful student

Dear Bob,

Let me tell you about me:

I was raped several times when I was six. My mom was a drug addict, and my dad never wanted me. Mom was 16 when she got pregnant with me, and she was going to get an abortion, but my grandmother wouldn’t let her. So she resorted to doing, even more, drugs during her pregnancy. As a result, I am blind in my left eye, have multiple heart problems (There’s a fatal chance of my heart conditions) and a rare water allergy called Aquagenic Urticaria (Unsure if the last is drug related) and many many other problems. I must be missing a chromosome or two because I’m the most intelligent fourteen years old you’ll ever find!

I have slowed reflexes, and I was taken away from my mom when I was four. I went to live with my foster family, and my step mom only abused me worse. I lived there for a year and nine months. But I’m living with my mom and stepdad now.

I just want to say thank you for showing love and care for millions of people you don’t even know! You’re a true inspiration, and I hope to become as great as you are one day!!

All it took was you saying “I care about each and every one of your lives” and you’ve seriously saved another! I can’t thank you enough!!!

“You have to be alive to see a solution,

 

A new found life,

Hey, Bob. I am a sophomore at Franklin-Simpson High School. My name is Meredith. The day before you came to our school I was planning on going home today and writing out my suicide letter, I knew that I would probably chicken out, but there’s always that chance. You gave me hope. You made me feel like my life was important and actually made a difference to someone, and for that I thank you. I also wanted to thank you for the prescription card you gave us. My brother has diabetes, and we couldn’t pay for his meds before we got this. I came up to you; I was crying. I shook your hand and said thank you but I didn’t tell you all of this so I am now. Thank you!

 

Hey there! You recently came to Muhlenberg High School, and as you spoke and played, my spirit already sensed something in you. And when you mentioned our Lord and Savior I was the one kid that got up and applauded. To be honest, that took courage and the Holy Spirit convicted me to continue leaving behind the shame of the Gospel. I do share it, but what you did set the bar and left me speechless. I wanted to encourage you, Man of God, to continue fighting the good fight of faith. Surely our Father in heaven will preserve you and guide you through His word. Keep on going, for His kingdom, that Christ may be glorified through you and volleyball (LOL). Thank you so much, you ministered to me greatly. May you be blessed wherever you go, and that our Lord can walk alongside you as a mighty giant that protects you. Amen.

 

I just wanted to let you know. Your message saved my life, it really did. The day you came to my school I wanted to die so bad. I had it planned out and everything. My parents fight, non-stop. I blame myself for it. I just got out of a bad relationship too, and I know this sounds bad. I had everything planned out. I was going to go home and take a bunch of pills. But when you came and gave that speech it made me think of what’s ahead. I love what you do; it is amazing!!

People think that kids that cut themselves are just doing it for attention and adults and other people don’t really understand that, I’m happy that you came to our school today. A year or so ago I met this girl online, and she was the sweetest thing ever, she was being bullied and was about to commit suicide. I spent all night talking to her, making sure she doesn’t go through with it, and I’m glad I spent that time, she, in fact, is still alive to this day, I’m glad I could have helped her.

A while back I wanted to run away from home because the problems were really bad at home, but thank you for today, keep going on with what you’re doing, please keep spread the word.

 

Dear Mr. Holmes,

You were at Hamburg Area Middle School on Thurs. Mar. 14. I truly enjoyed your program, but especially the last part of it when you told the students that you are a born again Christian. We get very few speakers who admit that which is a shame because students need to hear it. The students know my standing as a born again Christian, and many of them will come to me to ask for prayer for family members or friends, I am an English teacher, and I use many Biblical sentences to teach grammar. Unfortunately, we have to approach Christianity from the back door. At the beginning of the year when I start this, the kid’s eyes bug out as many know they are Biblical sentences. Some don’t even recognize it. I have done this for 20 + years and never had a problem with a parent. This is probably something the kids don’t tell their parents. Thank you again for being at our school. I will pray for your ministry to continue for many, many years to follow!!! If you are ever in our area again, please come to worship at my church, Salem EC Church outside of Lenhartsville, PA.

In Christ’s love,

Sandra E. ______

Bob,

I am Ethan Calvert from Allen Co. Scottsville High School. I never got the chance to tell you what an amazing job you did today. I enjoyed your program more than any program ever held at the school. I respect and admire everything you stand and play for. You have really blessed me and my fellow classmates. I appreciate your passion and dedication. Keep up the good work and the good playing. I hope God blesses you greatly for all that you do in lifting up the Savior in front of millions

Thank you for making a difference. You are a true hero to me.

God Bless,

Dear Bob,

My name is Nathan McGee and I’m a freshman at Carterville High School. I was one of the guys that came up to you afterwards to shake your hand and thank you. Man, I just wanted to personally extend my thanks to you more because you impacted me more than you know. I’ll be honest with you; I really did not want to go back to school today. There are obviously so many things I can’t stand about this sinful world we live in, and what’s worse is whenever I find myself being influenced (in a small way) by things I hear and see day-to-day. And believe me, as a Christian who has placed his faith and trust in Christ, I know that I can’t think that way. God is calling us to be the salt and light of this earth and to go out into this dark, sinful world and proclaim the Gospel. But Bob, I was so encouraged by your stand today. You know, whenever the school said we were going to have a “One Man Volleyball Team” come to our school and that he was going to give a motivational speech on making right decisions, I didn’t think that much of it. We have assemblies like that year after year and they’re alright but they don’t make people REALLY see what’s happening in this world up close. From the moment that you started speaking though, I was moved so much. I respect how REAL you were to us and how you didn’t mess around with trying not to offend people. One thing in particular that I loved that you said is about how men need to respect women. That has been a HUGE argument of mine for so long and even from my closest Christian friends there is sometimes that disrespect. It drives me insane. So many speakers will preach on how alcohol is bad, smoking is bad, etc., but never has anyone who has ever spoken at our school addressed how much we need to respect women and stop making them cheap sex models. I was shouting an amen at that one brother. The whole time though I was thinking, “This guy is great and all, but what is his motive behind this (other than us kids) to propel him to devote his whole life to something so meaningful.” And then you said something along the lines of, “You all need to know that Jesus Christ is not a curse word, but is my Lord and Savior”. I know that was paraphrased, but when you said that and continued on about the young girl and her unbelievably forgiving heart through Christ, I just about did a back flip right there. The fact that you were not ashamed to lift up Christ in our school and the fact that you have been going all over the world doing this, moved and encouraged me beyond words. After hearing your message, it just totally made my day. It let me see that other people are really living by what they say they believe and going out and making a difference. Once again, I cannot express way I’ve felt ever since you spoke. I swear that the Lord’s presence was in that gym today. Thank you thank you thank you thank you for getting up, going out, making a difference, and setting an example for all of us to follow in our lives. Continue to give honor to Christ alone and I want to encourage you as you continue to shine your light in this world. Thank you so much once again and God bless you brother.

Sincerely,

Nathan




 

Hi Bob i am from Carthage High school you came to my school on Friday, Jan. 11th you had changed my whole life perspective you showed me that there was actually someone out there that cared more than the people around me you were there and came to schools just to show that you care. i felt that you not only wanted the change but you wanted to show people what causes the change JESUS CHRIST.!!!  i had sat there watching listening as though i felt my life finally had a meaning. When i was 10 i tried committing suicide i had eaten rat poison my life was horrible then i went to bed that night and woke up i was in tears i just wanted nothing to do with the bully’s, the poison caused me veins to leak and bleed internally that lasted for about 3 months of pain but i was just happy to be away from school were the bully’s were it seemed the pain from the poison was less than the pain and shame of the bully’s but i thought after this i wouldn’t have to deal with it, but 4 years later it happened again i couldn’t deal with the pain of being bullied so i tried suicide by over dose that didn’t work either but then you came to my school made me realize that i have a reason for life and that i should never give up i went home that day told my family and friends about you and i went and looked you up on the internet trying to find a way to tell you that i am real thank full for what you have done i may have not made the right choices in life but you can help save people from making those choices i will never give up and never do wrong ever again so please Bob never give up i believe in every thing you represent, i believe in your message. i will always remember you.

The only thing I didn’t tell you was that when i went and got help they told me that even though the people around you don’t care that there is someone in the world that does care so that’s the only reason why I wanted to tell you about my troubles, Because I felt like you were the one that cared even if you didn’t even know me
Sincerely,

Derek 🙂

 

Bob, I just wanted to say whenever you visited Sam Houston High School your message really hit home with me, my life hasn’t been that great and I have thought about suicide often. But whenever you came and had that talk to us it made me realize that there are things in life to live for. I just wanted to say thank you for changing my perspective towards life your message meant everything to me.  Thanks, Bob.

 

Nicole

I wanted to let you know that your message changed my life. You shared the story of a girl who had survived through that terrible auto accident and lived to forgive the man and is now trying to get him out of jail. The fact that she could forgive him shocked me and really made me start thinking. So now I tell you my story.

Three years ago, come August, I was the victim of rape. A fourteen-year-old boy, whom I had met through a summer class, took advantage of me in my home and scarred me for life I realized that I could forgive because of what Christ did on the cross

Hey! I go to Northwest High School. And I just wanted to thank you for coming to my school today.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you do and why. So many teens die every year from committing suicide. And it kills me even to begin to think about why anyone would want to do that.
You are an inspiration, you are a hero, and you’re a mind changer. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It really hurt me inside to see what had happened to the girl who got hit by the drunk driver. And it really, really brought tears to my eyes, when I looked across that gym and saw all my other classmates with tears in their eyes, and to know that we could all relate.
One thing’s for sure… I won’t be picking up another alcoholic drink
Thanks Again. You will forever be in my heart, soul, and mind. Please don’t ever stop what you do, because believe it or not…You are helping us, and we are finally, for once, listening.
I don’t even know how much I can thank you. , I thank you. With every Breath I take I thank you, and with every muscle in my body, I thank you!!!!!!
Thanks again!
We really do love your message that changes lives
Stay in contact,
A Northwest Student.

Hey Bob =]

Suicide. Something you talked about and something I have contemplated before.  I’m really nothing special.  I haven’t been recognized for anything worthwhile. School, home, it’s all the same for me. People there hate me and could honestly care less. Most of my time at home is either spent crying or yelling. At school, I’m not like most kids. I don’t have friends there.

We have a lot of speakers coming in and telling us, don’t do drugs, don’t drink, and don’t give into peer pressure. It’s the same thing over, and over again. But your message will DEFINITELY stand out to me, not only now, but I guarantee for the rest of my life.

You have made such an impact on me; I can’t describe it. I also can’t thank you enough for all that you gave me today. You didn’t just stand up there and gave a speech to me; you gave me my life. Every time I think that my life is just totally useless, I’ll think about this day and your message and will NEVER TAKE MY

I have thought very serious about suicide. Nobody would really care whether I lived or died I figured. It seemed that way. Until today. For once, when you said that you really cared about each and every one of us, I believed it. And your message really touched me.

Don’t give up Bob with your message. I can’t tell you how many times I just mess up!  I use not to care anymore. Now, I see how much more there is to live for, to beat the odds. I’m alive for a reason; there’s got to be something here I’m meant to do. I never really thought of this until your speech today. We have a lot of speakers coming in and telling us, don’t do drugs, don’t drink, and don’t give into peer pressure. It’s the same thing over, and over again. But your message will DEFINITELY stand out to me, not only now, but I guarantee for the rest of my life.

You have made such an impact on me; I can’t describe it. I also can’t thank you enough for all that you gave me today. You didn’t just stand up there and gave a speech to me; you gave me my life. Every time I think that my life is just totally useless, I’ll think about this day and your message and one day, be someone. Catch my dream. Look up. I won’t listen to the commercials, won’t give into peer pressure and most of all, and won’t take my life.  I am so grateful for all you gave me today.

People these days sugar coat everything that they give to teens.  And you gave it to us straight.

You showed passion today and more importantly heart, and I think it takes heart to be able to change minds.

Bob. I know that you made a difference today, because when I saw the faces of the kids today, I could tell they were thinking of what they had just seen. Thank you

From, Jessica

 

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you do and why. So many teens die every year from committing suicide.

You will forever be in my heart, soul, and mind. Please don’t ever stop what you do, because believe it or not…You are helping us, and we are finally, for once, listening.
I don’t even know how much I can thank you. , I thank you. With every Breath I take I thank you, and with every muscle in my body, I thank you!!!!!!
Thanks again!
We really do love you!
Stay in contact. Love always,
A Northwest Student.

 

I think what you do has to be one of the most honest, most memorable, and most honorable things a man can do

When I lived with my dad I cut myself; I’ve actually put myself in the hospital for near suicide several times. Hearing you today makes me realize that even though I may not mean much to my family, I mean something to someone else. Thank you very much

What your doing is just mind boggling, and I’m very glad you’re doing it. I also wanted to say that your assembly really made a difference in my life.  This actually lifted my heart back into my chest.

The total amount of cuts I have done is over 300, but I have nine major ones on my

Legs. I was very upset at my family, so I took a razor and just sliced out part of my legs. I would love for you to come back to Windham you REALLY HELP US BEAT THE ODDS thank you so much for your speech to save teens from suicide

I really believe that you got the message across to everyone. I think that this was the ONLY assembly where people actually went silent when you asked them to. I just wanted to thank you for coming. That was so much fun. You are a HUGE influence! I think that it is really cool that you dedicate your life to helping people to keep going. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

 

You have the most beautiful message I have ever heard in my life. There were students in my school that were cutting their wrists, some of my personal friends. They refuse to cut after they heard what you had to say. You saved a couple of my friends lives bob and for that I thank you

I told my mom everything and now she is going out of her way to get help for her problem. Bob you saved my family just by that talk you showed me the courage I needed to stand up to my mom and tell her to stop.

Bob your message touched me so deep and I thank you for that a thousand times you are truly the most wonderful person I have ever met. If you get this please reply.
I could never do anything to repay you.
Thanks so much,
Nicole Richardson

In 1962, when the BIBLE WAS removed from the schools of the United States, the eyes of an entire generation were removed

The “Commandment is a lamp, and the Law is light,” and removal of the Law left a generation in the dark as to moral absolutes

Prov 6:23

23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Ps 119:105

05 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO BRING SIGHT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY BLIND,  AND WE HOLD IT WITHIN OURSELVES

IN A WAY WE ARE ROBBING PEOPLE OF ETERNAL SIGHT

“Woe unto me, if I preach not the Gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16).
