Thoughtful Thursday - Missing Josh, one year later

It was one year ago today that Momma got the awful phone call that her nephew Josh had died. It has been a very difficult year for everyone. You can read more about Josh on his Mom's blog here. Josh's mom and his sister are running a half-marathon and full marathon, respectively, in Washington DC on Saturday. They are running in Josh's memory and also raising money for his memorial fund, which will be used for education and prevention of teen suicide. If you are there, give them a shout out. They or their supporters will be wearing shirts with "33" on them. Tell them Biggie's Momma sent you.

Hug your teens and tell them you love them. No problem they face is so insurmountable that they should feel so alone and lost.

It is very sad that teens will feel so alone that they resort to suicide. We can each help to reduce teen suicide statistics by starting with our family. Parents, just give your children a hug and let them know that no matter what happens they can talk to you. Children/Kids, we are your parents. We are here to guide you, to support you. We are here for you.
