Why is suicide the 2nd leading cause of death in ages 15-34 in the U.S.?

I read this statistic on the CDC website and I was stunned. We hear every day about someone committing suicide. It’s tragic and heartbreaking. And why young people in probably the most prosperous country in the world — America? Why are so many children and young adults who should be looking forward, not ending their lives. They should be looking forward to things like their career, marriage, children, the rest of their lives. Instead they are ending their lives. So I thought back to why—why would someone be in such despair that they would end their own life? The answer to the question is they have forgotten who they really are. They have forgotten why they are here.

When I was awakened in April of 2009 my life careened out of control. It was not accepted and I fought very hard to find answers and I did. I have the answers now over 8 years later but the journey was very depressing. One morning I was awakened to Hashem’s voice and I was so sad. He said, “If you only knew who you really are you wouldn’t be sad anymore.” I never forgot those words. I never forgot how He said them. I am sharing that with you, whoever you are.

I don’t know if you are in despair or if you’ve known someone who is in despair but share this video. Share this information because we are a creation of God Himself. That’s who we truly are and in this world of things we get caught up in what we look like, how much money we have, our jobs. If we lose our jobs we feel we are worthless and it’s just not true. You are a creation of our magnificent Creator who is indescribable. Your power and your potential is virtually limitless.

We need to remember not only who we really are but where we come from and to reach for Him because He is genuinely real. He is not fictional, a character in a storybook. He is not a puff of smoke of energy. He truly is all knowing, all powerful, all loving and beyond any words that I could share with you. But I will try and that’s my purpose. Our purpose collectively as humanity is to bring His goodness and His essence here on earth so that we all feel His love.

I hope you enjoyed this Q&A. There is a deeper conversation about suicide and depression on one of my programs. I hope you will join these programs that I host every Sunday called “Running on Love with God” because I’m sharing His wisdom. I’m sharing what I know. I know too much to be silent and I hope you will share these programs and join the conversation. You can also schedule a private meeting with me. It is my gift to share with you and help you in any way I can. God bless you and may there be peace on earth in our time. God bless you. I’m praying for you.
