It is time to step up and make a difference as a community working together to STOP drugs and abuse and suicides. We've started the process here by Gateway providing Gatekeeper suicide prevention trainings; by educational programs, initiatives and forums by the Ketchikan Wellness Coalition, WISH, KYI and many other service organizations. But this is not just a job for these organizations. We need to do more -- as members of our community. Attend the "Enough is Enough--a Community Conversation" meeting at the Ted Ferry Center on Tues Jan 12th at 6:00pm. This is our opportunity to rally as a community, to speak out as a unified voice... against the problems that concern us, to address needed action, to join others in bringing our solutions forward. This meeting is billed as: "It's nobody's fault...but everybody's problem. Join your neighbors in being part of the solution." Stand up and be counted. Make our community one in which our youth can flourish; help them get the education they need for their future success; and make Ketchikan the place where they want to raise their children. THEY ARE OUR FUTURE
