Working with hundreds of farmers, so many of whom are in the act of self-destructing, has straight-up messed me up. You honestly feel so bad for them, but they don't want to change & there's nothing you can do.
It'd be bad enough if it were just themselves they were hurting. But they're taking everyone and everything down with them.

How are the young people in ag supposed to just live with that?
That's one of the hardest things to convey to folks who don't work in ag. The ag community is great at saying "Hey we're dying here." But they won't talk about why.

And it makes do-gooders try to wall-paper the problem w solutions that have nothing to do w the real issues.
And for young people in ag who see the problems, know we'll have to be the ones to clean them up, and have to build a life for ourselves from the wreckage

it's a real hecking dilemma.
