Kofi Siriboe released his short film “Jump” yesterday and it has already been getting buzz. The film follows Ziggy, a African American male that is detached from reality. Ziggy continues to see a young girl that is telling him to follow her, but every time he finds her, no one is ACTUALLY there. He repeats the words, “I don’t wanna live, I don’t wanna die”, directly signifying his complex with living a life of depression and actually not wanting to ending the life he know (with friends) but doesn’t enjoy. His friend tries to reach out to him but he’s not interested in hanging out or talking. It ends with Ziggy on the bridge considering what to do next…
I’m proud of Kofi Siriboe for this wonderful film. Keep up the good work! OnPoint!
According to reports, Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital late last night after a suicide attempt. Just before she was wheeled out of her home on a stretcher with two slits on her wrist, the 15 year old had posted cryptic tweets on Twitter that read, “Wonder why tears are salty? Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”
She has major depression issues, a lot of it stemming from her dad’s death. It’s very real and very sad. She has been extremely depressed and not been able to sleep lately, staying up all night.
Earlier today, her mom confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Paris slit her wrists while telling the site that Paris has had a lot going on lately. She was also upset that she wasn’t allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert.
It’s hard to say what her current relationship is like with her father’s side of the family (after the highly publicized fallout with Janet last year), but over the last few months, she has reunited with her mother Debbie Rowe and has begun forming a closer relationship with her mother’s side of the family.
It hurts my heart to see a young girl going threw this type of pain. I don’t think a lot of people understand the pain that this girl must be feeling. I pray that she looks within herself and sees that she is worth all of what has to offer. Also I hope the relationship with her mother works out for the best.
