Suicide, Veterans

November 12, 2012 in General by Scott

With regards to productivity, this weekend was nearly an entire wash for me. My only single accomplishment was making it out to the AFSP’s charity walk at the University of Miami on Sunday morning. I did not make it to the two other events I had planned.

A large turnout and support for veterans at the walk. Honestly, I was unaware that there is such a shockingly high rate of suicide among veterans. In the first half of this year, there were more suicides among active duty troops than there were military fatalities in Afghanistan. Troubling.

So I went to the walk. I walked with friends. And that was that. I didn’t take photos at all this weekend, really. And I didn’t write. But hopefully, what I did will make a difference.
