You can save a life

on December 15, 2012

There are no words to express the grief and fear that has overshadowed the United States today in the unnecessary event at an elementary school in Connecticut. This could have easily been my town or yours, no one is immune. My heart grieves for the parents and families as well as the community that will forever be haunted by this tragedy.

Folks, if you know of a child who shows signs of instability or a family which is causing such stress upon a member to which would cause another to snap, please intervene. I know none of us want to be in another person’s business but we all know children and adults who are unstable. Mental and emotional help is out there. Do not think it is not your responsibility. In all the tragic shootings, interviews of those who knew the gunmen have stated a note of instability prior to the events.  I often wonder if someone had spoken up if the event would have ever taken place.

If someone is reading this blog now who is struggling with a roller coaster of emotions, it is not a sin or a crime to seek help. Neither is it a sign of weakness on your part, if anything it is a sign of great strength to seek help. Do not allow your life to be so tormented that you have the need to take such drastic measures to get relief. People do care and are very willing to help you find the help you need.

Every life is valuable. If people do not take action by either seeking help or speaking out… it could be your community next. Intervention is the best prevention. Make a difference, save lives.
