December newsletter from the Bridge Rail Foundation


The title says it all and it should be clickable, but just in case, it isn't, here's the link:

There's a special note from Kevin Hines who is one of less than 2% to have jumped and survived and an outline of what's going to happen in 2010. Yes, the Bridge Authority has approved a net as a barrier but the money has yet to be found and, if things go the way they always have, it'll just be talk and no action and the issue will fade into the background again. People are still dying at the rate of 30 a year, one every 10 days, 2 or 3 a month. That shouldn't be allowed to continue. Really!

I wonder if something as old-time goofy as a bake sale would make people pay attention and talk to the leaders.

Doris, my oldest sister's first born son took his life at age 17, so I understand some of your pain & know the questions you must have.
I also know how hard it is to lose a son although mine was just 4 months old. Sometimes even though the questions don't get answered we can take comfort in a shared spirit..
