A Family’s Heartbreak

On Monday, November 28, 2016, Christian William Harned went missing.  His mother asked those of us in the Moms of Boys Facebook group with her to pray for her son to be found safe. She told us that Christian suffered from schizophrenia, as well as asperger syndrome.

Sadly, on December 1, 2016, Christian was found deceased.  He had committed suicide. The pain of his mental illness, the limitations it put on him and the social isolation it caused him became too much. The video below was made by Christian’s sister to raise awareness to the suicidal dangers faced by people suffering from mental illness.

We should all think about what we can do to make a difference in the lives of others. Sometimes, one small action is all it takes to make someone change their mind, to save their life. How will you make a difference?
