Military suicide rates dropping in 2013! Good new?

Without a clear reason given by those that are attempting to address the suicide situation among the military ranks, we are left wondering why are they going down and will this last?

Current rates have been dropping in direct correlation to the numbers of the returning troops from over sea's, and I do not think this is a coincidence.  Even the smallest ray of hope will change the direction of those considering the suicide option.  The hope of seeing their loved one's again, hope that they will not have to be deployed again, hope that they may return to a normal way of life without protocol, and/or the thought of having to follow orders that puts lives in peril.

Do I believe that this is a temporary dip in the suicide rates?  My prediction for 2014 is yes.

Once the holiday leave for our military is over, mass seperations from the service to reduce the numbers being deployed to stem military spending, and the reality sets in that relationships can not be repaired because of extended seperations, rates will go back up.  And, the veteran rates will encrease as well because of those being deemed unfit for service because of the medications being perscribed to stem depression and/or anxities.  Economic pressures will also play a large part in encreasing the suicide rates for 2014 because of a lack of jobs for those returning to the workforce.

The survival instinct has three hierarchical threat levels it has been programmed to be aware of; 1) the Soul, 2) the Body, and 3) the Mind. With the highest level of threat being, when the SOUL is in danger.

There is only one way anyone can consciously make the decision to commit suicide! The survival instinct has to be activated to protect the soul from a perceived threat by one, or both of the other two components; the Mind and/or Body.

In order for the MIND to become a threat a d…
