Whether focusing on suicide or dementia, “I think we’re barking up the same tree,” added Ralph Demicco, who owned a chain of New Hampshire gun stores, Riley’s Sport Shops, for close to 30 years. “To encourage family members to take preventive measures makes sense. Unlike a lot of signs of suicide, an individual sliding toward dementia would seem to have a very pronounced and noticeable progression. So there’s ample time for family members to intercede.”

FY Society explores American society with original content and analysis, as well as through the lens of curated news and articles.

We are simply trying to tell a story. Our story, the story of America past and present–who we are and how we got here, and perhaps more importantly: where we are going. We have a whole lot more in store, however, so please consider helping us in that effort by visiting the FY Store, or with a donation via Patreon.
