September 20, 1997?This day, American punk rocker Nick Traina (19) killed himself with an intentional heroin overdose.

Nick Traina

Traina suffered from serious bipolar disorder. During his short life he had already been hospitalized for several times for his illness; he had survived two previous suicide attempts.

Two months before his suicide he had left the San Francisco punk and ska band Link 80. He had been in this group since he was 16, and in many of their songs he was the lead singer.

Mother and Son

Nick Traina’s death got extra attention because his mother was the very popular, bestselling novelist Danielle Steel. Born from Steel’s failed marriage with heroin addict William Toth, Nick had been adopted by her next husband John Traina.

Ship from Africa

When a ship from an Ebola-plagued nation docks on American shores with a crew full of sick passengers, by all means, we should bring them into the country and treat them.

But don’t worry – the CDC figured it was probably fine.

Women and girls face many challenges around the world that are unjust and often cruel. From child marriage to sexual violence, it is no secret that women experience oppression on a daily basis. But the natural phenomenon of a woman’s body should not be a source of shame, and it certainly should not contribute to her own oppression.

Menstruation is the number one reason why girls in developing countries miss school or drop out altogether. In Kenya, a girl misses an average of 4.9 days of school each month because she is unable to attend class during her period. That adds up to 20% of the school year. Without access to commercial sanitary supplies, women will resort to using such methods as rags, leaves, newspapers and bits of mattress stuffing to manage their periods. Not only are these methods uncomfortable and ineffective, but they can lead…

The thoughts and the background noise are getting louder and clearer. Sometimes listening to music will distract them for a while, but they come back. I know they aren’t really there, that the voices are not real but they are hard to ignore. My rational mind tells me that it is just my mental illness manifesting in a different way.

My irrational, impulsive mind tells me to follow them. 

 

I need it to stop.
