So, I suck at push-ups... But I can walk, so join me in my 22 mile walk over 22 days to help our veterans. See more
Please help me to bring awareness to this horrible issue of veteran suicide. In this country where we are so quick to love and adore musicians, artists, actors, and athletes, we do not pay enough respect to the men and women who sign up to put their lives on the line for our country. Whether you agree with our politics or not, these young men and women are still fighting for America. Every day, 22 veterans/soldiers take their own lives in this country. Suicide is a horrible legacy to leave these families. My hope is that we raise some money to help these veterans when they come back from combat, where their lives are flipped upside down, where they see horrific acts of violence and terrorism. I personally worked with a veteran while doing my BSN and heard so many stories from homeless veterans of what they saw, how they feel, how they were treated. During my volunteer work we had a vet that we spoke to every week commit suicide. We need to stop these tragedies, we need to support these men and women thru their struggles, demons and depression. Let's help at least one vet get the help he/she needs to stay alive and healthy.
