In a highly individualist and seemingly standoffish society, Samaritans of New York offers a pure and open form of communication and support to people in crisis. And in an age when suicide rates, particularly among those of college students and teenagers, are rising faster than the rates of those who die in military combat, it is important to spread awareness and extend resources to those in need. Join me at this year's 7th Annual Walk to Prevent Suicide and Save Lives. Consider making a donation to Samaritans, an organization that teaches everyday individuals how to readily and confidently respond to those who are suffering and feel alone. We can all use a helping hand now and again.
