For some time, for the end of this year, I have wanted to write something for Ples i Grad, which could have a place on our blog, but also in the Pravo i Zdravo section (this part is only in Serbian language).
Unfortunately, the news appeared that belongs to both section of our web site. News with a very important message.
A well-known DJ, dancer and producer Stephen “tWitch” Boss committed suicide. Just three days after celebrating his wedding anniversary with his wife, Allison Holker, also a dancer. The couple often posts videos together on TikTok and Instagram and has a large following. They released a dance video together just two days before his death!
tWitch and his wife, both dancers who appeared on the competition series “So You Think You Can Dance?” and “Dancing with the Stars.” He was also DJ in famous TV show of Ellen DeGeneres. The couple married in 2013 and marked their ninth wedding anniversary this week. They share three children. Obviously, he was a very successful and famous. Apparently, nothing has indicated that he is going to take his own life.
This also can be said for many famous people who committed suicide: Sylvia Plath, Ernest Hemingway, Robin Williams and many more others.
On World Suicide Prevention Day, the World Health Organization warns that around one million people take their own lives every year. In Serbia, the number is quite frightening and statistics say that around 1,500 people commit suicide every year. (source: prevencija samoubistva – Žena.rs (blic.rs).
Look up for telephone numbers where you can reach for help in your own country (data for Serbia are given in Serbian text on this blog).
Take care of yourself and your loved ones, that’s our message for the end of 2022!
