I woke up this morning to the sounds of the news in the living room. All I could hear was MENTAL ILLNESS and the shooter. It breaks my heart that yet again, Mental Health is on the news again due to another shooting. I'm sadden that another person with mental illness had to get to the point of injuring and killing others and then himself.
My prayers go out to the families of those injured and killed but most importantly to the family of Spc. Ivan Lopez. May God be with everyone affected by this tragedy.
I'm a mother with an agenda to save her son from the grips of his mental illness and stop stigma so that those who suffer in silence can seek help without fearing the worse. Join me on this roller coaster ride..you're no longer alone.
