Stopping for Nothing


28 April 2012

There is a time when older folks (me included) should step aside and let youth take the reins. Thank you young people for doing your part in stepping up. Your passion is noted and appreciated.

Tonight was the GJHS RISE walk at CMU. Not nearly as many people attended tonight as last year, but still, there were a few hundred. Most of my community friends were not there, and none of our family attended. I wonder if this is the nature of all health outreaches? Or is it specific to suicide that things drop off after a few years? Is it scarier than other maladies? Or is it a team building thing? I am not going to stop helping the kids with the endeavors that they think will help.
