This is a great story. The statistics are shocking. Horrifying even. If I’m doing my math right, about 17% more firefighters committed suicide than were killed in the line of duty last year…….Two of them were my friends and former co-workers.
That’s not ok.
It is encouraging, though to see that, perhaps, things are starting to change. Take away quote: “It’s going to take a while to get rid of that stigma of, ’It’s not okay to not be okay,’ ”
