Some 'good' comes out of two tragic events. - February 17th 2017, 07:20 PM

I hope you're having a good day.

Click on the link below and watch a video about the lives of two men.

"It was two days before Christmas in 2006 when Andy Sandness reached a breaking point. He’d been sad and drinking too much lately. That night after work while “super, super depressed,” he grabbed a rifle from a closet. He stared at it for a while, then put a round in the chamber. He positioned the barrel beneath his chin, took a deep breath and pulled the trigger."

Andy Sandness survived.

In early June of 2016 [Almost 10 years later] a 21 year old man named Calen “Rudy” Ross shot himself in the head.

Calen 'Rudy' Ross did not survive.

But out of these two tragedies - something good happened. Calen made it possible for Andy to have a 'second chance' at having a 'normal' life.

It's an emotional 4 minute video. But it's worth watching.

And if you do take the time to watch it - let me know what you think.
