Title

Kill That Elephant

Artist Statement

This spoken word piece is about a battle many people face but many people do not discuss, suicide.

I like to talk about real issues and this one hit home for alot of people.

How it fits into contest

This video responds to Ephesians 6:10-20, by illustrating a battle, showing the testimony but also goes further to encourage others...To remind them of their worth.

I was doing some research and came across hundreds of notes from young people sharing their thoughts and feelings and attempts and their cries for help in this area. It wasn't my intention but this piece was birth that day. I hope it encourages someone to fight the good fight and live.
