Recently, Perryville Santa Cruz Unit suffered a tragedy. A young woman chose to end her life. Although the circumstances of her pain will never fully be known, we appreciate the special COII officers who took the time to counsel with her as often as they could. We would also like to express our most heartfelt thank you to the officers who tried to do all they could to save her. This event has touched many of their lives, as it has ours. If you can, please take a moment of silence for this young woman’s family

Added note: One week later, another woman chose to also end her life. Her attempt was thwarted, however, and she survived. This sort of occurrence happens often as women lose hope.

Thank you all for your prayers for our safety.
