I have found that when confronted
with a difficult
choice, the hardest
thing to do
is usually the right
thing to do.
--Richard Edwin Reynolds



Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around."


We want to thank MIX104 Radio for the Awesome Charity Marathon. Because of them we were able to raise over $10,000. THANK YOU ALL!! Also, A huge thank you to everyone in the Twin Cities who donated. We could not do this without you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families
and friends who lost loved ones on 9/11.






STIGMA - IT HAS TO STOP

Stigma is not just the use of the wrong word or action. Stigma is about disrespect.
It is the use of negative labels to identify a person living with mental illness.
Stigma is a barrier and discourages individuals and their families from getting
the help they need due to the fear of being discriminated against.
An estimated 50 million Americans experience a mental disorder in any given
year and only one-forth of them actually receive mental health and other services.


I'll Stand by You by Chrissie Hynde


"I'll Stand by You"

Oh, Why you look so sad?
The tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
But donít be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
Cause Iíve seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
You donít know what to do
Nothing you confess
could make me love you less

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you

So, If your mad, get mad
Donít hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
But hey, what youíve got to hide
I get angry too
But Iím a lot like you

When youíre standing at the crossroads
Donít know which path to choose
Let me come along
Cause even if your wrong...

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you

Take me in into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you
Iíll stand by you

And when,
When the night falls on you baby
Your feeling all alone
Walking on your own

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you...
