I read a news story this morning about a 21 year old woman who committed suicide. She was a brilliant student, involved in important projects, and an excellent athlete. She had everything to live for. A wonderful life was waiting for her. Yet, she couldn’t see it. Life overwhelmed her. Listen to others. If you feel something is bothering a friend, don’t ignore it, take time to ask. Take time to listen. Check in on them. Help them find the help they need to get over the bump in their road. And, if you’re a prayerful person, pray for them.
