COMMENTARY-DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE

With the celebrity suicide deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain this week, the topic of depression has again come to the fore. Two people who seems to have it all apparently battled depression.

Depression is a bigger problem in the LGBTQ communities. In the trans communities depression and suicide is even higher. It's so important that people know there are resources out there.

ANNUAL PRIDE PARTY

Celebrated pride at our annual pride party at the church. There was poetry spoken word, singing,and, later on, dancing. The theme of the party was 1970s music. Some folk wore 1970s style clothing. There was plenty of food also. Spouse and I danced a lot. Hope I can get up in the morning.

COMMENTARY-GUN VIOLENCE

Once again there's been another mass shooting in a school. At least ten people lost their lives by a person(s) with a gun. THere are calls for for gun control. THere are those who, despite what happened and are sympathetic, defend the Second amendment. fortudiously. 

What is missing here is any thoughts about the shooters. Are they all mentally ill? Did they break because of problems at home? Not all the shooterswere mentally ill. Some were angry. Others were hell bent on hurting whoever came in their path. I understand both sides of the argument abot guns but a greater point is being overlooked- the people who commit these horrible acts. Unless how to intercept the people with help they need before hand, all that is being blown is hot air. .
