Suicide is one of the leading causes of death for first responders and veterans. They have seen too much evil in the world and not enough good. Making matters worse, they are often portrayed as villains instead of heroes. Stephen Anthony, an Army and National Guard veteran and longtime police officer, explores why suicide is so prevalent among first responders and veterans – and what we can do to give them hope. Learn how to: • encourage the public to view first responders and veterans favorably; • get those considering suicide to seek help; • Overcome problems by relying on faith in God; • see the world through the eyes of someone considering suicide. For sixteen years, the author talked people out of killing themselves – until one day, God had to talk him out of doing to himself what no criminal had been able to achieve. Get answers to why so many first responders and veterans consider and commit suicide – and learn how to save a friend, a loved one, or even yourself.
