I am old enough to know better but young enough to still rebel. I tend to follow the road less traveled largely because I find the predictable boring and I hate for others to have expectations of me. I am a passionate, sensual, creative dreamer. I am open minded and a bit of a free spirit. I believe in things unseen- God, angels, ghosts and evil. I believe there are many paths to God and the truth lies in pieces across our great earth. I love animals, traveling, the ocean, the mountains, and my solitude.....if you have questions or wish to have a confidant, I am here. You only need to reach out.

As of August 2011, there have been 23 reported suicides, and 125 reported attempts in the Marine Corps, according to the Marine Corps Family Program Suicide Prevention Program, compared to 52 total suspected suicides in 2009, and 37 in 2010.

So I guess it only matters if you’re a marine?
“According to those news releases, as of July 31 of this year 151 soldiers had apparently taken their own lives. But a document obtained by CNN shows that the Army has actually counted 163 suicides this year.”
Marines aren’t the only ones.
No, of course it doesn’t only matter if you are a Marine. This just happened to be a Marine Corps statistic and photo for awareness throughout the Marine Corps. Anyone can see that the message can and should be applied to the other branches because this is happening everywhere, and into the civilian world as well. Seriously, why would there be any discrimination in suicide prevention?
