Motor no start

Hi guys I know that this is the wrong spot for this but more people at this section then others. So I went to the park with the dog and after he was tired went to leave and the truck would not start. Nothing no started click nothing. I have no idea what it is. I have checked all fuses and relays. Tried tapping starter when key turned over and still nothing Any ideas would be great thank u.

ok simple, the wire that runs from the starter solenoid down to the solenoid on the starter is broken. its about a 16 gauge wire. OR the connection on the main power wire is bad but if its bad you would hear a distinctive click
