Author Get-Together September 11th 2022
“Follow your dreams” -unknown
An important memorable day for the aviation industry; on September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks were carried out. The attacks involved the hijacking of four commercial airplanes. The attacks resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, including passengers and crew members on the planes, as well as first responders and civilians in the buildings and surrounding areas. The attacks had a profound impact on global politics and much more. The aftermath of the attacks also brought about significant changes in security and policy both within the U.S. and internationally. The date, September 11, is now widely known as “9/11” and is remembered as a tragic and pivotal event in modern history.
Let’s take a moment where we came from & what we have gone through. Flight Attendants are resilient & as the leader of the book series, creating a space for us to come together was mandatory.
Thank you to our incredible Superpower sponsor Kossi Awoutey who made this event happen with the generosity of IA Brossard. Thank you to our Superpower sponsor Karina Olivier who was present at our event to support. Thank you Fika Végane for the delicious food as always. Thank you Marilise Arseneault for our beautiful pictures. Thank you to all our Superpower Authors who came, celebrated, helped and contributed to the event! Without all of you none of this would be possible; LIKE NONE!
Thank you Mélissa Bérube from AQPS for being present with us, as a group we were able to generously give 1120$ to the foundation for Suicide Prevention.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
World Suicide Prevention Day September 10th 2021
“The world is a better place with you in it” -unknown
World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on September 10th every year to raise awareness about suicide and promote efforts to prevent it. The day aims to spread awareness about the factors that contribute to suicide, reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues, and provide resources for those who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts or feelings.
On this day, us authors came together for an event, discussions, and activities that focus on mental health, suicide prevention, and offering support to those in need. The hope is that by raising awareness and promoting open conversations, more people will seek help and more lives can be saved.
With Volume 1 I am a Flight Attendant & That is my Superpower we were able to donate 1390.50$ to the Suicide Prevention Association of Québec.
Thank you to Mélissa Bérubé from AQPS for organizing the venue with the generosity of Hotel 10 Montréal in room 2116 where Dédé Fortin stayed. If you do not know his story, please look it up on the internet.
Thank you to the wonderful authors who came on this memorable day, supporting the cause. Thank you to my sweetheart Kossi for your support & dedications to us & the cause. Thank you to Marilise Arseneault for the wonderful pictures.
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts or feelings, it’s important to reach out for help. Many countries have helplines, crisis intervention services, and mental health resources available. If you are in Canada please call 1.833.456.4566.
Remember that you don’t have to go through this alone – there are people who care and want to support you.
Always with love, jessica dsb
