APPLETON - A display at Lawrence University is providing a stark reminder about suicide awareness.
The "Don't Sit in Silence" event featured 180 empty chairs outside the student union.
The chairs represent the number of Americans who commit suicide each day.
Some chairs had postcards with messages on them.
The goal is to raise awareness about a problem that spans all age groups.
