Kids Are the Same Everywhere

November 13th, 2012

11-13-12As I make my way around the perimeter of the country, I am finding that kids are pretty much the same everywhere. They face the same problems and deal with the same issues and nearly everyone of them, by the time they are 18, know someone who has taken their life. It is a story that is taking place across the world in huge numbers. There is a big interest amongst students in helping to stop these ever-increasing deaths.
I met Benji, a very caring high school student who is interested in helping people who are struggling with life. He wants to make it a profession, and from our conversation, I can tell he will have a positive impact on many lives. There needs to be more Benjis in the world.
