27 May Memorial Day and Answers
A day of thanks to our armed forces and their families. Thank you all. We appreciate your sacrifice. One of my brothers served in the Marines in Okinawa and my other brother and former husband in the Navy in Viet Nam. They were lucky. They came home and were physically and emotionally OK. I was blessed as well.
I am having a hard time writing this post. My heart goes out to all the military and their families everywhere. Not just here…EVERYWHERE. Men and women are sent to do the unimaginable; what they have been taught their whole life not to do…kill and hurt someone else. How can we expect them to do that and not be affected?
I heard on NPR this morning that they have a twitter site that asks: What did being in the military mean to you? They expected to great PR footage…instead, 10,000 talked of PTSD, ruined marriages, missing limbs, homelessness, rape, and suicide.
May we all treat each other with Dignity, Civility, and Honor so that we NEVER need to go to war again! There are answers that do not include violence.
We need to start with creating emotionally intelligent, resilient kids who believe in themselves rather than the mean words of the bully. We need to guide the bully to be the hero and lead everyone to be a Confidence Booster vs Fault Finder. It IS possible! Let’s work together!
