My friend Rachel (she of the recent guest blog post) is going to need new sneakers.
Rachel is participating in an Out of the Darkness walk, to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Scary to think about, but approximately once every minute, someone in the United States attempts to commit suicide. Approximately once every fifteen minutes, someone succeeds in their attempt. The AFSP performs research and education programs that are designed to help reduce these numbers, preferably down to zero.
You can sponsor Rachel here. I did. I hope you will too.
