But I’m guessing maybe you don’t either, so maybe we both can just wing it until we do? I am today years old and learning about building websites, website maintenance, Lorem ipsum, pings, and BASICALLY NOTHING IS ENGLISH TO ME. But I’m still here. And I’m going to learn. Because according to the CDC’s Leading Causes of Death Reports, in 2017:

  • Suicide was the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 10 and 34
  • There were more than twice as many suicides (47, 173) in the United States as there were homicides (19, 510).

These figures scare me more than putting my feelings on the world wide web. Our children belong in our homes, and schools, and communities. Not in the ground.

    Amen! The statistics are terrifying, but there is hope. I hope we can help anyone, age 10 or 90 that we ALL matter and we are never alone.
