The Battle Never Ends
I was in Springfield, MO just last week. A dear friend notified me that a Marine there died by suicide this afternoon. I did not know this Marine, but had I known him and I had I known that he was struggling I would have done something. In the last two months I have been notified of six suicides.
After 150 successful interventions this year I know that we have what it takes to help those on the battlefield of despair. I am going back to the Ozarks in the spring to train all I can in the skills that are saving lives. We are dealing every day with circumstances that most people would rather avoid. But you can do something. You can give to help us do even more.
In this season of giving will you look in your heart and consider what you can do to help us help others. While we can't send you a blanket or even a coffee mug with our name on it, we can save a life with your help. Take a moment now and give something. Every penny helps and is used wisely to serve those who are hurting. Visit www.StandwithThem.com to make a difference.
Thank you and God bless you!
