Life can be difficult. But you are never alone. Yes, God is with you, but so are so many other people. And we have all faced the difficult days you are facing right now at one point or another.

Do not be afraid to reach out for help! It is not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign of great strength to ask for help. It takes a person of great courage to know when they need help and to ask for that help.

If you need immediate assistance, please dial 911 (in the United States).
