So, for day #2 of the 22 day push-up challenge I found myself on the sandbar at Jewfish Key, just off of Longboat Key. My dog, Lucy, did all she could to make me lose my balance and fall completely in the water.
This was a simple way, through a challenge, to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware of. Military men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms only to get out and feel lost. It is sad that 22 veterans a day feel that suicide is their only way out. If you know a veteran who is struggling, or you know someone who is struggling, call 1-800-273-8255 for help. The more people who are made aware of both the struggle and the way to help, the better.
