response to the “ran out of hope” post  . . . . . 

The response to the blog about running out of hope kept that post on my mind last night. I recieved several messages, each person sharing the story of a family member or friend that seemingly lost hope. 

I researched for a few minutes and it appears the numbers for suicide are rising. It seems that alcohol and drugs are 2 words that come up often, when remembering the lives of a lot of these folks. 

I have personally known several that chose to end life. I never knew any of them enough to have thought they would have made the decision to end it all. 

Well, enough for now. The statistics are staggering. I Googled “suicide in America”
