Last week’s blog “Are You Good” got quite a response from many of you and I appreciate it. Some people liked it, others did not, but everyone seemed to have an opinion and was not afraid to share it. That is exactly why I write  and why I enjoy this community so much.  Even if we disagree wholly or partially, we are discussing it and that is what I am after.  Mental health is a serious issue in our country and sadly affects the very populations I have spent my entire adult life with, our first responders, military members and our teenagers.

If we can start to talk with those around us and make a commitment to really care about one another, I must believe we can make a difference.  Let us lead by example and show others what compassion, caring, and LOVE can do!
