Live And Help Live

8909380232_3553948280_hThe Associated Press is reporting that suicides among young women and girls is on the come up (find the article here). Say what? Why?

They’re reporting that girls and women are more effective in their approach. They suffocate themselves more often than overdosing on a drug like more men tend to do. Suffocation works better. Huh?

Researchers aren’t sure why there has been an increase in suicide rates among women and this makes my heart hurt. I have my own theories but who knows. I just know that it’s up to us to save lives. Speak into someone’s life today. Be a beacon of light. Inspire someone. Encourage someone. Tell your daughter, niece, cousin, bestie, teacher, lover that she is stronger than she knows, that she can endure what’s to come, and that her life is worth living. Take up responsibility for the lives of others as well as your own. Live and help live.

I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
