I need to make this brief, as I am on my way to church.
Our Beloved friends, Dave and Cindy, recently lost their son. (the Day before yesterday). Without going into details the death was ruled accidental… their son had been playing – or curious about – the ‘choke game’
It is a very dangerous game that adolescents play – where in a nut shell they restrict the air just enough to ‘pass out’ (IF you’re lucky enough to ONLY pass out). There’s a high from it.
What they DON’T know is that not only are you hurting your body, brain function ( you actually suffocate your brain, and KILL brain cells ) and whatever else…. kids DIE from this. It’s not a myth, it’s not a lie. Kids do this, and there are too many cases where they die from this.
I have herd of this – before – as when I was younger we called it something different…. I can’t quite remember something about ‘sleep’.
I wasn’t going to post really anything about this ‘game’ until I discovered that I knew.. quite a few people who have never heard of this. Though it surprised me, a little, that they didn’t know it was a stark reminder of how we must help one another be aware of as much as possible.
And SO I want to warn those, in my ‘reach’ about this ‘game’ that is not really a game… but something very dangerous. And I can tell you now, unfortunately, from the perspective of having known someone that lost their baby to this ‘game’
I’m ‘Stealing’ a link another friend had shared *winks* as it is an excellent source of information.
Make yourselves aware of this parents, teachers, leaders and teens…. it’s important to know, and help others to know the truth and stop it from happening in our lives.
