survivors per day, tens of thousands…

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average number of deaths per day from 1990 to 2007 in the US (data for 2007 is preliminary) is 6,411. Approximately 6,411 people die in this country every day. I had to let that number sink in to my brain. When I think of the number of survivors affected by those deaths, it boggles the mind. My mom had six immediate survivors (her husband and five kids). That does not account for best friends and siblings, who can definitely be defined as survivors of her death. I think of all these people who are struggling with the issues my dad and I faced, I want to help each and every one of them…Peace
