September 11th

Today is September 11th. For eight years that date has meant something new to us. Today we have unity. Today, with our flags at half-mast, we understand loss. This day also means something else; something about loss. September 11th is World Suicide Prevention Day. This is a day for half-mast flags not only for America but the human race. We've lost so many...we've lost so much. On this day we stand together against suicide. It isn't held back by the borders of stereotypes. You know someone who's been affected by depression and suicide. You probably know many people who have.

There is hope in this world that many people don't know. There is beauty and life and love that's stronger than death. Please remember today that this world needs that love. Please don't assume that someone else will give it. Shine a light in the darkness. Give someone a smile, a hug, a kind word, and speak a prayer for the ones who may not get a kind word today. If you're reading this and you need hope, reach out to someone, drop us a message.

Today is September 11th, and love is stronger than death.
