My Great Grandfather died in 1918 of the flu. One Hundred years later, people still get the flu, and people still die from it. The flu is endemic. We have learned to live with the flu being a constant presence in our lives.
1.4 million people attempted suicide last year, (just in the United States). For 2022, let’s see if we can work on getting that number down. Suicide is not something we should accept as a constant in our lives- it doesn’t have to be endemic.
