First Person on The Last Page: Seeing It, Hearing It, Stopping It
by Patricia (P. K.) Harrison
I have been a speech-language pathologist since 1983—the last 11 years in the
public school system. I've always loved my job and enjoyed knowing that I help
kids succeed despite their obstacles and differences. But one day, my job and
mission became very personal.
On Feb. 7, 2009, our precious 16-year-old son, Alex, took his life after
being the target of bullying so intense he saw no other way out. My husband
found his lifeless body near a big maple tree one-half mile off our property,

What is ACT Now and what does See It. Hear It. STOP It. mean?
On February 7, 2009, a 16 year old high school student in Cadillac, MI took his own life after he could no longer endure the mean behavior of other students. His name was Alex Claypool Thomas Harrison.
The first letters of his name spell out ACT and that became the name of our group, ACT Now. Our number one goal is to STOP teenage suicide. We do this by raising funds for school and community projects, raising awareness b
y putting on events and passing out information and providing the students and other community members with a resource in their time of need.
Our community came together after this horrible tragedy in an incredible way, but we want to continue the positive results and carry it to different parts of our region, in Michigan and possibly nationwide.
See It. Hear It. Stop it. These words are not only a slogan for the ACT Now team, but a way of life. It represents everyone working together to stop mean behavior. You too can be a part of our efforts by joining our group, volunteering your time, donating to your school and simply respecting others for who they are.
