are you there, God? it’s me, generation x.

We really need to start talking about the increasing
number of suicides among white, middle-aged Americans.

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell…

    @MELINDA – I mentioned this in another response – Good Morning America aired at story about this problem this morning and mentioned the Freddie Mac acting CEO. I was so glad to see this, but it still was NOT as big as it shoudl be. Also, my bro left a comment about the Army having a growing problem with an increase in suicides. We have GOT to start talking about this stuff without fear!! THANK YOU!

    Jen–we really do need to talk about the increasing amount of hopelessness that so many people seem to be crippled by today. Depression is at an all time high. Personally, I think more people could benefit from seeking a higher spiritual plane. I know, for me, that true serenity and peace has come from that path.

    Peace to you, Jen–
