Dateline: February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida. Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday had not coincided since the 1940s. The day began as an amalgam of frivolity and solemnity. It wound up a tragedy in Broward County. Violence in America.
There’s an ongoing epidemic of Youth Violence.
The American Mental Health Foundation (AMHF) is the exclusive publisher of the works of PTSD-authority Dr. Raymond B. Flannery Jr. Pictured is the first edition (1999, second edition 2022: the link in the short paragraph above) of Dr. Flannery’s books that is issued to help save lives.
AMHF has blogged on the topic earlier, especially as it related to the Sandy Hook murders of five years ago.
