I’m sure you've read the story of Anna Bright, the 14-year-old daughter of Joseph and Patrice who committed suicide after binge-watching Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

By signing AFA's petition to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, it shows me that you care deeply about the dangerous impact 13 Reasons Why is having on our nation's young people. That's why I am writing especially to you.

What you may not know is that just two days before Anna Bright's sad death, another young girl had already done the unthinkable: copy what she had seen in the Netflix series and take her own life.

I was devastated when I received a second heartbreaking letter from a grieving mother whose daughter became a victim after being influenced by this show.

You and I both know 13 Reasons Why is a dark and demonic primer for impressionable young people, inviting them to enter a realm of perversion, hatred, and violence that has been birthed in hell itself.

That's why I have written a letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, urging him to meet with me personally so I can share my concerns and yours. I know of at least four suicides that have been linked to the storyline of 13 Reasons Why.

Would you help me warn as many parents as possible by letting them know about 13 Reasons Why?

Please share the information below with everyone you know, especially those who have teenagers in their home.

I wanted to let you know about a petition that I signed to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. Through the American Family Association (AFA), I learned of a show called 13 Reasons Why that is airing on Netflix right now.

13 Reasons Why is extremely dangerous and has become a lightning rod for critics who say it glorifies suicide and may even make it an attractive option for teenagers who are enduring difficult times in their lives.

I’m warning my family and friends about 13 Reasons Why and am asking you to learn more at I hope you will take time to read about 14-year-old Anna Bright, who is just one of many who committed suicide after binge-watching 13 Reasons Why.

Then, join me in signing the petition to Netflix, urging them to pull 13 Reasons Why before another teen decides to end their life through suicide.
