Local filmmaker takes on dark subject

............................................ from the D&C ..............................................

The simple name of a movie created and produced by Shortsville, Ontario County, resident Craig Simmons is meant to deliver a message to teens and young adults thinking there is only one way to escape a miserable situation. "They feel as if no one is listening to them," he said. "I want to reach out to the parents who feel helpless and hopeless and frustrated because they are trying to reach their kids … trying to help but they don't know how. "Just one kid that kills themselves is one too many." Suicide was the second-leading cause of death in 2013 for young adults between the ages of 15 and 24, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's the third-leading cause among those 10 to 14. "This is something we all need to talk about because it's just getting so prevalent," Simmons said. "It's reaching epidemic proportions. We need to pay more attention to it."
