"Content Warning Statement Please note : Pieces in this collection deal with various topics such as suicide, mental illness, and drug abuse. Those pieces that do have been marked on this contents page with an asterisk (*) for the reader's awareness . The placement of content warnings is not a matter of coddling a generation that is exceptionally sensitive . Rather, they are put in place because we feel we are more aware of what people have gone through and of the issues they may be dealing with . "
