Community member Ray Givler wrote this in response to Kevin Briggs’ TED Talk, The bridge between suicide and life:

“A lot of intelligent people watch TED talks. Bright minds face existential questions that the majority of the population don’t even consider, and they face them with greater intensity. Addressing this issue is gifted education researcher James T. Webb’s 2013 book, Searching for Meaning: Idealism, Bright Minds, Disillusionment, and Hope. I recommend it to any TED member who feels hopeless or that believes that life has lost its meaning.”
