Make the Connection

The holidays are all around us now -- Christmas is past, Chanukah and Kwanzaa are in the present, and New Years Eve is right around the corner.  I've been spending time in-between shopping for gifts and visiting with friends and family to work on episode 06 of Random Waves.

I'm excited about this upcoming story.  A young man with thoughts of suicide is saved by random connections with strangers.  In a way, this story is what Random Waves is all about -- random human interactions that help us out along our paths through life.

In this holiday season, there may be someone you know that might be thinking of suicide.  A lot of times, the signs are too subtle to notice.  This is why simple connection is important -- keep in touch with others, say hello, ask about their day, and so forth.  It'll help your friends and acquaintances, and also help you out as well.  Who doesn't need connection in their lives?

Can't find someone to talk to?  There's always someone online or a phone call away.  Here is the link to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
