"Sometimes I feel so alone - like no one cares. It seems my folks live in their separate world and I live in mine. I know it sounds crazy, but I want them to leave me alone and yet, I want to be a part of their lives. Most of the time they leave me alone and it gets pretty lonely" A Lonely Teenager
In the next 30 minutes 285 children will become victims of broken homes, 685 teenagers will take some form of narcotic, 57 kids will run away from home and 229 will attempt suicide. Loneliness plagues the lives of young people, even Christian youth, and they are trying desperately to fill that void.
