Support Is Needed For Suicide Awareness And Prevention

Suicide is a serious problem in our society. I believe with the right programs and support many of them could've been prevented. I lost a friend in college. He was only 20 years old. That is just one of thousands and thousands of similar sad stories in the world today. Here is an opportunity to help. Plus, you can have some fun while participating.

According to,

K9s for Veterans mission is to help veterans with post traumatic stress disorder transition back to civilian life once their military service has ended with the help of trained service dogs. We are committed to educating the public about the plight of veterans with PTSD and streamlining the process for them to get service dogs, so they get the help they need...  Before it’s too late.

According to the Suicide Awareness and Prevention Facebook page,

 As most know, this meaning is to never forget the fallen men and women who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. Now I want to add on to this meaning to never forget the men and women who lost their lives to suicide. 22 soldiers a day fall to suicide and it is 22 to many.
