Hello Sacred Friends,
Much love and faithful prayers are sent your way today! I am so happy to be blessed with new friends from around the world. I lived my earlier part of life in western Europe and I miss it and love it dearly. I've lived in Spain, England, and Germany, and have visited many countries in Europe. My soul reaches out to you everywhere in friendship!
May I ask that you take some moments to hold in thought and prayer our Native youth in North America? Teen suicide is at crisis levels and there is something really dark and wrong going on. I welcome any thoughts or experiences you may want to share, especially from our Elders. Our hearts are one and we are here for each other. Peace & Blessings!
Here's the latest article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com.
Teen Suicide in Indian Country
This topic is one that is extremely difficult to think about and even harder to discuss. Our Native youth commit suicide more than triple the rate of other young Americans, according to federal government figures.
