Meet Jonah Mowry

If there's anyone who hasn't figured out yet that this is real, the problem is deep, and lives are being lost because of it, either you're not paying attention or you're living under a boulder.  The pain is pervasive, as witnessed by the sheer number of teen suicides today.

Meet Jonah Mowry.  Now, I don't know about you, but watching this video ripped my heart from my chest.  I'd advise you have tissues handy.  See, this is the type of struggle that young gay people are dealing with today.  Far too many of them are resorting to suicide as what they feel is their only hope of ridding themselves of the pain.  Thankfully, Jonah made the decision that he doesn't want to end his life...he just wants the pain to stop. As a call to your compassion, please reach out to Jonah.  Let's help him stick with his decision to work his way through this.  Thanks.
