Jordan,

I reached in all the wrong places when depression hit me while in high school a few years ago. I was an all state athlete in soccer then and when I realized things were coming to an end with graduation, I was not able to cope very well. I just wanted you to know that there are so many opportunities to help you beat your depression. Your family should look into the Horsham Clinic in Ambler, PA. The have a great adolescent unit there that will teach you great cognitive skills and help you over come what ever it is that is concerning. Through hard work and dedication you truly can survive. I know I have.

Amazing how depression meds can cause suicidal attempts. I'm glad he's alive. He obviously has a greater purpose to serve. No hopefully he will dump those meds in the trash.

50 mph? Was he clocked? I guess he is lazy too, if he would've went up a few more floors he would have completed the task.
1. You are a horse's ass.

2. If you know what height he fell from, you can calculate his speed at impact.

Life is hard - it's no easier now for me than it was as a teenager it's just all in how you handle it. If you can't deal with the teen years you're going to have problems later in life. Learn to talk to people to help yourself.

I once jumped my Iroc Z over a small dirt pile and came down with such force it knocked a tooth out! Therefore, I can completely relate to Jordan. My mouth was sore for a week after that! Keep your head up Jordan and everything will be cool within 1 week!

You Roc,
I sense your sarcasm. If only you knew the feeling of owning an Iroc Z and pushing it to the limit while jumping a small dirt mound! I may have lost a tooth in the process but overall it was worth it. You should do the same it may help with your cynicism!

It's free. No strings attached. Just lots of love, healing from the torment of depression and eternal life thrown in for free.

I've been there, and it's real, and so worth the journey. I'm healed and delivered now from 7 yrs of the pain of depression, fear and panic attacks and intent to commit suicide.

Choose life, I just wanted to say God bless you. It's hard to be misunderstood, and reviled for it. You are right, we do have different ministries.
