22q #22kills

US Military Suicides:
22 a day
660 a month
8000 per year
128,000 since 2001

We have about 1,000,000 active duty military at any time. Most of them survive our wars. Many bring back wounds, physical or mental. Perhaps 3% end up killing themselves. Doesn't seem like many, until you realize that there are 10 wounded for every death. What is the real cost of our wars?

An 'evil' woman, named Kimberly Long, challenged me to expose the fact that, on average, 22 U.S. Veterans commit suicide each day.

"22 Kill Challenge", which is designed to bring awareness to the unacceptable fact that 22 veterans a day are lost to suicide. Several have noted that this number seems very high, and it is. The 22 comes from a 2013 VA study on suicide rates among veterans- ranging in age from 22 to 60.

The Veterans Crisis Line is a great resource to help prevent suicides of our military people, 1-800-273-8255, press 1! If and when you choose to accept this challenge, post a video of 22 push-ups a day and nominate someone each day for 22 days. ‪#‎22Kill‬

I therefore nominate my seventeenth "KILL" to be Laura Flanders, because I know she has the skills to expose the truth, and it's past time to do it.
