Zac Efron vs. Lindsay Lohan – To Write Love On Her Arms

By Dr. Bradley Frederick

hollywoodnews.com: Yesterday, before a special advance screening of his movie “Charlie St. Cloud,” star Zac Efron was presented in a video. The screening was for supporters of the non-profit To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), an organization dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self injury and suicide. In the video, he addressed commonalities between the message of the film and the intent of the organization.

Unemployment is at record highs. People are not only losing their jobs but their homes, their pensions, their hope. The Army posted the month of June as being their worst month for suicides since the Vietnam War. It feels like we have been struggling for a long time and that is why now, it is more urgent than at any time in recent history to find meaning in one’s life.

Often, young Hollywood celebrities seem to get caught up in their fame. They fail to see the reality of those outside their circle and they fail to fully appreciate the ramifications of their actions. The burdens of being a role model, especially at a young age, have proven too much for many young celebrities to handle and we watch them tearfully sentenced to jail and watch the news countdown to their early release.

So Lindsay et al, here’s some advice: Stop focusing on your problems and start focusing on some solutions. Then find a way to give back and you just might discover a life with real meaning.

Only those who reach out to help others will have lasting fulfillment. That is why groups such as TWLOHA are so important. And that’s why Zac Efron’s few moments to acknowledge them are significant and newsworthy.
