Websleuths Post of the Day!! Monday May 11th 2015/mpnola winsWELCOME TO THE WEBSLEUTHS POST OF THE DAY FOR MONDAY MAY 11TH 2015
Before we start nominating let's take a moment and go back in time, long ago, yesterday actually, here is a signature line that now has the honor of being the Websleuths Post of the Day for Sunday May 10th.
I found the BEST signature today. Granted it's not technically a post but let me talk to the executives at Websleuths and see if we can make an exception to the rule...OK, all the voices in my head said giving the Websleuths Post of the Day to a person's signature works just fine.
The poster is rachaellouise. Her signature line reads: Whilst being on Websleuths makes me more aware of what evil there is in the world, it also reminds me that the best people are among us as well.
Isn't that the greatest? While we are at it you can look at one of Rachaellouise's posts on a thread that needs our help, The Jason Berglund thread.
Step right up and nominate a post, any post, for the Websleuths Post of the Day for Monday May 11th 2015

Our post of the day comes from an older case. I'm really surprised we didn't hear more about this case because it had a rare and happy ending.
Derick Allen Higgins, 21, was last seen in Tallahassee, FL, 21 March 2013. The good news is Derick was found ALIVE in January of this year. He got into a car accident and for some reason the accident seemed to trigger something in Derick’s brain. Derick never went home. He lived on the streets for two years.
His wonderful parents have a Facebook page talking about mental illness and Derick's case. It is so important that we talk and talk and talk until we truly understand what mental illness is all about and how to treat it.
So, our post of the day goes to mpnola for this post from 3/18/2015

If I had to bet, I will guess his parents will become strong advocates for early detection and treatment of mental illness. I applaud them for speaking out instead of hiding in a shell. So often, people don't want to disclose what happened. This is a case where families can learn, they can grow, they can recognize something in their child or they can have hope and guidance on what to do if they have a family member with a mental health diagnosis who is missing. Kudos to this strong family! Hang in there, Derick! You have the most
important thing in your corner- love!"
Here is Derick’s parent’s Facebook Page.
We need to bring mental illness out of hiding. It’s not shameful. It’s an illness. Until we all really understand mental illness I’m afraid we will continue to have desperate street people. All of whom have slipped through the cracks of society.
