Day 479 of 22 for #22kill, in support of our nation's #veterans and #firstresponders. It's unacceptable that #22vets take their lives each day from conditions such as #ptsd, and I'm continuing this challenge to help raise #awareness so that our servicemembers and veterans can get the help they need. Their defense of our freedoms deserve our support to help them lead fulfilling lives as civilians.
Take time to let those people in your life who've served know that they are loved and appreciated. It could make all the difference in their day, and help them to win their battle. We can work together to let our veterans know that suicide is not the answer. #letscheckonafriend
If you, or a loved one, may need help, the Veterans Crisis Line number is 800-273-8255 [Option 1], or you can text to 838255. Their website also allows confidential online chat: www.veteranscrisisline.org
The two sites below are organizations that help educate and empower our servicemembers, as they transition from the field to their family.
If you are seeing this post, know that you are an awesome and amazing person. And yes, you matter to me.
