  1. Thank you for being honest and talking openly about mental health, suicide, and what can be done to protect people whose brains are more vulnerable. Thank you also for telling the story of Balaam and his donkey. This story is familiar to people interested in animal rights and the Bible, but it is important to share what the Bible says about protecting animals and their rights with the general public.
