In trying times like these, with the Government Shut Down effecting so many people it is important to be mindful of the pain and stress people are feeling. During a news conference this morning (January 24th, 2019) a Suicide was mentioned as being related to hardship being suffered by individuals in this ongoing National Crisis. We must all support each other in these difficult moments and remember that help is never far away. Free judgement-free assistance is available at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours per day 7 days per week. Share this number widely and use it as needed.

Thanks for sharing this informative and educative information. This is a must read everyone as it will help foster love and educate other people’s mind as I have been educated on getting to those who think suicide is the next option and let them know reasons why it is not. I will follow this and save lives.
“They say” Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems – and it is never necessary when help is close at hand. Show love and kindness anywhere possible and it will save lives!
I love the title of your post (and picture), although I’m not a great advocate of “slogans” even though they do serve a purpose.
The elephant in the room and no one can see it ! (joking aside though). I agree with you Casey, we ought to be more mindful, or share more empathy with our neighbours. And it’s great that you do what you do.
Thanks for a great reminder
Thank you for Sharing your thoughts! Kindness is never wasted and I appreciate your gesture today!
Hi dear, thanks for this reminder. We are in difficult and strange times and it is time to show little kindness not only to our friends and loved ones but also to our neighbors and the downtrodden in society. Suicide rate is on the increase as a result of depression, economic meltdown etc. As hardship increases, some people tend to take the quicker way out –suicide which is not a solution at all.Thank you for reminding me the importance of looking out for one another. I am definitely bookmarking this page and taking note of that listed number.
Thank you for taking action! We will never know how many lives we can save if we all act like you do- in kindness today and every day! 🤗🙏🏻
This is a very good development. The rate at which people commit suicide these days is alarming. Many people takes their own life due to depression, poverty, heart break or neglect.
As rightly stated in the article, if you noticed you have not heard from your loved one in a while, it is very wise to call him so as to know how he is doing. This will give him a feeling that there is someone out there who still cares. A little kindness can change a whole lot of things.
You are right! A little bit of attention can go a long way to helping someone feel better about everything.
Thanks for this informative and brilliant article, I was touched reading this article because it sent cold through my spine with a very important message of rendering help to those in need irrespective of the distance between, some people natural won’t express their pain until you ask them about what they are going through. showing love and care is important to everyone.
Distance is an illusion & so is time- and in the end time and the comfort provided for people by being there for them – can make all the difference. Sometimes it really is a matter of
Life and death . Choose life!
