With Help Comes Hope

I finally found it!  Call me slow, I guess.  Earlier in the month, facebook advertised that they were joining the fight against suicides by launching a new page that would be linked with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  Until tonight, however, all I could ever find were ARTICLES telling about it.  Determined, I tracked it down, finally.

This is a link EVERYONE needs to have handy in case of emergency.  Copy and paste it somewhere.  Then, write the phone number down somewhere where it's easily accessible.

I'm very happy to report that Joshua is doing much better, thanks to the overwhelming support he's gotten from around the world!  He even started therapy.  So, kudos to all of you who read about him here and reached out to him.  And, for those of you who didn't, you still can send him a friend request.  He's accepting all.

When you check out the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and read down the page,  you'll see several opportunities for you to reach out, send messages, and embrace these emotionally wounded people as they struggle through a very tough period of their lives.  A couple who jumped off the age at me were GaryLucas Love Wang, and Chloe Strand.  They're both contemplating at this very moment.  Just as we all reached out and pulled Joshua back from the edge, these two people now need that same support.  With help comes hope.
