Picture of the Day - 1100 Black Flags

Last week was Cuesta College's Mental Health Awareness Week. Active Minds is the on-campus club advocating mental health and they created the symbolic display above. This display features 1100 black flags symbolizing the roughly 1,100 college students who successfully commit suicide each year across the United States. This display was part of an awareness campaign by the Active Minds club. Given there are two major campuses to this college, last week this display was at the main campus in SLO and this week it was here at the North County Campus (NCC) as pictured above. My dear friend Erin Cunningham-Smith is the president of Active Minds and invited me to hang out while they set up this display but regrettably my schedule would not allow it.
