A suicide takes place every 40 seconds. At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive. Across the globe, nearly 1 million people die annually by suicide. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts in a given year and over 40,000 deaths by suicide, with our military being hit particularly hard. Research has shown that for every one death by suicide, over 115 people are directly affected and impacted. The estimated financial cost of suicide is over 40 billion dollars annually. People around the globe are uniting and responding to calls for change with the goal of having a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world. #BeHereTomorrow.
A bunch of friends and I went to Heartwood for burger and bingo tonite. Last week we ordered a burger and a small amount of fries came with it at no extra charge. This week, several ordered the same thing. When we were given our bills, some had a $3.00 charge for french fries. A friend told them he got 7 fries and was charged $3,00. They insisted those that were charged the $3.00 would have to pay for the fries or the police would be called! Also, I took a set of slotted bingo cards and a deck of cards to use last week and left them at Heartwood. This week we were told they would not use them because of the liability???? I asked them if I donated them, could we use them and they said no. I won't be at burger and bingo next Monday
