I live in fairly affluent middle class neighborhood but with all the benefits we experience two young friends of my family still have decided to end their lives. Of course these individuals were troubled but weren’t there resources that these young people could have grasped that would have prevented them from ending their lives? Where was the community whether it be through clergy, school or just a neighbor to help befriend such a troubled youth? It’s time that we do more to help those who are suffering it doesn’t take a village just a group of caring friends and family to make that difference. Let us pledge to lend a hand or shoulder to our youth that need a helping hand.
