This Comedian Thanked His Mom For Saving Him From Suicide During His Graduation Speech. Excuse Us While We Sob In The Corner.

"I'm not just alive for my mother, but I live for my mother."

Managing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and other mental health issues can be trying. Sometimes, a single person can make all the difference, and their love and empathy can save a life.

Sometimes, that one person can be your mom. 

Cue Demetrius Harmon, a 20-year-old ball of wonderful creativity who decided to dedicate a portion of his Edsel Ford 2018 commencement speech to the most important lady in his life: his mama.

Harmon tweeted a clip from his speech, captioning it, "I never told my mom this but she saved me from killing myself, I got the chance to tell her in front of all of these people."
