I’m . Are the people who feel businesses are violating their civil rights by refusing to serve them if not wearing a mask, the same people who argued that businesses who refused to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple, had the right to refuse to serve anyone they choose.

It hurts my heart to see the occurrences in Minnesota, both the senseless death of George Floyd, and the rioting that ensued. Why are we still here as a nation? shouldn’t just apply to the pandemic, but also to the humanity we all share.

A 2019 VA report revealed that more U.S. veterans died by suicide between 2008 & 2017 than died during the entire Vietnam War. In a 10 year span 60,000 U.S veterans took their own lives, compared to 58000 lost in a war that lasted 20 years.

You are not your mental health diagnosis nor are you the labels others assign to you. You are a wonderfully made tapestry of thoughts, feelings, and emotions. You are unique and special, with value and self worth. We are better off because you are here so please

What if, didn’t focus on borders or economic wealth but focused instead on the value & inherent worth of every living soul; realizing that America can only be great when I value & love you as my brother & when my Black sons feel as safe and valued as yours?

Let’s take some time to dwell on positive things! What is something good that has happened in your life recently?

People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things, especially when battling depression. Your mind can become obsessed with negative thoughts, self-judgments, guilt & anxiety. You are not who depression says you are. You matter and you are loved.

Much appreciation for highlighting the importance of addressing this issue. We must tell the stories of those who lost, and those who love them, and we must work towards a solution to end this horrible tragedy

Veterans are 1.5 times more likely to die by suicide than Americans who never served in the military. Our veterans have sacrificed enough. Support the mental health and wellness of military families.
