As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
There is more to May 18, 2013 than people realize. It is our day of awareness for families and friends, who have lost a loved one to suicide. “When guns fall silent and ceasefires are agreed, wars live on in the minds of the men and women who fought them. And a killer still stalks them, more deadly than the enemies they once faced.[i]” These statistics are staggering. The rates are climbing every year. “349 service members in all branches of the US Military committed suicide in 2012, up 15 percent from 301 suicides in the military in 2011.[ii]” Like soldiers, teenage deaths due to suicide are the number three killer taking the lives of our youth ages 15 - 24.[iii]
