Blue Moon 211 Inc.

Blue Moon 211 is a community that cares about the impact suicide is having on today’s society.

According to the National Suicide trend rated by CDC, over 38,364 people have killed themselves and over 487,700 people were treated in the U.S. emergency departments in 2011 with self-inflicted injuries. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among persons aged 10-24, the second among persons aged 25-34. Every 13.7 min someone has committed or attempting Suicide.  If, we as Community Leaders such as; Educators, Politicians, Law Enforcement personnel, Religious Leaders, as well as parents and grandparents take a firm stand we can help combat this issue.These numbers are alarming in our society; yet, not so alarming in a society without faith, love and peace. We must find it in our hearts to bring our young people back to trust/faith in themselves, their parents, our government and the ultimate love of God. Over 1.0 million has lost their lives to suicide since 2008.

I have a personal stake in this issue. In January 2013, after reading an article about a young man who took his life in Seattle without knowing that there was help out there. He gave up. God placed this vision in my life to carry out his mission. If, I can reach out to one soul, I will have touched many souls. Help us to save a soul. The letter he left behind touched my spirit when he wrote “God, please for-give me.!" --"I heard that cry too many times before, have you?" Our children are taking their lives because there is no HOPE for tomor-row, all...Faith has gone. No pain is greater for a family or community than the loss of loved ones as a result of suicide. And, no loss is more tragic than the loss of a life due to hopelessness and despair.The time is now!! Let's make a difference... You will experience the difference

 We thank you for your support!! We look forward to having your non profit organization participate in a cause that affects us all; as a nation!  Walking out of the darkness into the......LIGHT.
