Prayers for Brittany and Roger
I want to thank every one of you who rose to the occasion last night in attempt to save a young life.(blog entry "AN URGENT CALL TO ACTION") I don't know where this young man lives other than in the US. I've sent him links for help, my own contact information, and prayers. Many of you did, too. Let's hope for the best.
And, as I'm sure you know, there's always more to do. Fourteen year old Brittany needs your prayers. The facebook posting that I saw said that she's in ICU after attempting suicide today. We need to send lots of prayers her way. And, yes, she was yet another victim of bullying, but we'll get to that later. For now, let's send lots and lots of prayers and hope she pulls out of this first.
Lastly, and sadly, we lost a crusader in the war against bullying. Roger Crouch, whose son, Dominic, committed suicide in May of 2010, passed away tonight. In loving memory and honor of his son, Roger worked hard to bring about changes that would hopefully help prevent other teens from going through what Dom endured. His efforts reached around the globe, and he will be missed. I'm sure his family would love to hear your words of support. R.I.P. Roger Crouch.
