22 Veterans a day commit suicide…TWENTY TWO. That’s the sad and terrible reality, but there is help. If this documentary can get even one of our vets to reach out, and stop someone from taking his or her own life, then it’s worth it. The only catch is, in order to screen this film in Jacksonville, more people need to reserve tickets so that it can be presented on October 1.
After tragedy struck home last year, two combat-wounded veterans set out to end a little-known epidemic in America. Their 6,500-mile cross-country mission was to raise awareness of the high rate of suicide amongst Veterans and show their brothers and sisters-at-arms that there is hope for them. During their journey, they interviewed researchers, healthcare providers, and Veterans. Many of those they encountered had either contemplated or attempted suicide and were able to share the life-saving alternative sources of hope that they had found. Asking hard-hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, and painfully spurred on by recent estimations that 22 veterans are taking their own lives every single day, Daniel and Doc will stop at nothing to reach tomorrow’s twenty-two.
