The Radiance Foundation responds to rising sense of hopelessness in youth

Ryan Bomberger: ‘We can’t look to government officials for solutions to mental and emotional health issues they helped to create’

April 5, 2022

WASHINGTON D.C. — A recent CDC study revealed harrowing statistics: More than a third of high school students reported their mental health suffered during the pandemic, with 44% saying they persistently felt sad or hopeless during the past year. The study also found that students who felt connected to adults and peers at school were significantly less likely to report these feelings of depression.

Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), responded to these concerning survey results, claiming that the spike in feelings of hopelessness and sadness in youth is a direct response to how many government officials responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bomberger stated, “The world’s response to COVID has taught us that fear is reliance on the wrong source. The CDC’s overtly political policies have caused immeasurable harm to our society, especially among our youth. This is the result of fake health guided by hypocritical politicians and government bureaucrats who flaunted their own rules that did little to nothing to mitigate what seems to be an engineered disease. Children look to adults to guide them, and COVID ‘guidance’ has been two long years of confusion and control. We can’t look to government officials for solutions to mental and emotional health issues they helped to create. The Source of help and hope is far higher, and He has been the constant in the middle of COVID’s orchestrated panic.”
