Lansdale Remembers Those Who Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice
Thousands of Bucks and Montgomery County residents paused today to remember the sacrifices carried out by the men and women of the U-S Armed services. Services were held today Memorial Park. Event organizer, Jay Davler says, more and more, people realize that today is not just a day to have a barbeque.
“I think with all the world events and news media and the things we see going on in the world today, I think that’s actually building back the spirit that we had with our military years and years ago.”
Davler adds, every year there seems to be a larger and larger turnout at Memorial Park
College Students Feeling Stress Can Seek Help on Campus
It’s not known why a 21-year-old college student from Skippack failed to return home after leaving the University of Rhode Island last Thursday. Matthew Royer eventually made contact with his family, ending a week of emotional turmoil for his parents, who held a news conference on Monday in an effort to reach their son. Dr. Tina Paone urges college students who feel stressed to seek help.
“All colleges and Universities have a counseling center on campus and it is free to all students. It’s important for students to utilize those services. Those are folks who are trained and licensed and they’re there to help students, whether the problem is academic, personal or social. They are there to help.”
Dr. Paone is a therapist and Founder of The Counseling Center at Heritage in Montgomeryville.
