I donít know who's aware of the new movie ďRails and Ties,Ē starring Kevin Bacon and Marcia Gay Harden, and distributed by Warner Bros. Part of the story is that a mentally unstable woman commits suicide by parking her car on a grade crossing.
 
AAR and the Suicide Prevention Action Network USA (SPAN) are working to get Warner Bros. to place the national suicide prevention hotline phone number, 1-800-273-TALK, placed in the theatrical and DVD releases of this movie.  
 
Passenger and freight rail both work hard to prevent suicide and accidental death by train. It is traumatic to the victims' families, community and rail workers.
 
We have a link to a letter AAR sent to Warner Bros. asking them to put the suicide prevention hotline on the movie and DVD. It's at www.aar.org/AAR_SPAN_LTR_TO_WB_RT.pdf
 
You can also check out our press release at www.aar.org.
 
Weíre hoping to generate a large ground swell of support to convince Warner Bros. to place prominently the phone number as part of this film.  
 
Any buzz you can create would be greatly appreciated.
