With nearly 500 registrants from across the country, KyleCares sponsored an entertaining and thought-provoking virtual presentation on June 5th by best-selling author Frank Warren, “The Most Trusted Stranger in America” and founder of PostSecret.com.
Warren engages audiences with the inspiring, funny, and at times heartbreaking
stories behind highly personal secrets sent to him on artfully decorated post cards bymanonymous strangers to be shared online. A worldwide phenomenon,
Warren’s PostSecret.com website has been the most visited ad-free blog
in the world, and he has raised over $1 million for suicide prevention.
Warren discussed what we can learn from secrets, and offered “when we hide
secrets inside of us they feel like walls and isolate us, but in reality they can be
bridges that remind us all we are connected”. By finding the courage to share our
stories of personal struggles, we can release our burdens, reduce stigma, and
help each other by encouraging others to ask for help in response to the
rise in anxiety, loneliness, depression, and suicidal ideation.
