    I would like to thank Everyone who participated, posted, contributed, or even just gave a silent prayer or thought to the surviving families of the late Nurse Saldanha of the United Kingdom, and the horrible tragedy of Sandy Hook Elementary School inn Newtown, CT as the losses this Holiday Season- whatever their or our faith have been devastating, and as small as my prayer seems- you all have it this Holiday Season.

    Call and check on that friend or family member you haven't heard from in a while, take a moment to lift someone spirits- even if yours are low, and don't miss one irreplaceable moment with your loved ones this season.

    Thanks for your excellent insights, words of kindness and support to the affected survivors, and for the awesome community each and everyone of you, moderators and members alike promote here. I would be honored to serve among any of you!

    The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline

    1-800-273-TALK (8255)


    Counseling that is Free and Confidential. They even specialize in Veteran's Crisis, Substance and Alcohol Abuses related Crisis, PTSD (even Non-Military related, Disaster related Crisis, Family Crisis Intervention, and so much more if you or a loved one need help now.

    Once after my dad entered a depressed state after loosing his son, a subsequent lay-off, and a vehicle repossession during my early college, I scratched the Lifeline down on a card, afraid to "discuss" it with him. I found it still in his Rolodex years later. I would never ask, but the help they offered may be why I'm not fatherless today. Suicide devastates families. It's the least I knew to do. The Holidays can be the loneliest, and darkest of times, and I hope the light comes in to those in danger of suicide- someone cares!
