"We tend to think of the rational as a higher order, but it is emotional that marks our lives.  One often learns more from ten days of agony than from ten years of contentment."
~Merle Shain

"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars."
 ~Kahlil Gibran

"There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature.  A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with."
~Harry Crews

We can stare at the horrors experienced that day.  We can learn to live with what happened that day.  We can sympathize for those that lost loved ones that day.  We can shake our heads in disbelief, as we listen to the names of those who died that day.  But one thing we must never do is forget that day.

September 11th.  It was a day that changed you and me.  Daily I see the anger, resolve, and the dedication in those that joined in 'counter attacks' in Iraq and Afghanistan.  And daily I see the results of war.  I see  young men and women, warriors of all branches, scarred in one manner or another from fighting so that we can have our political opinions, and we can say what we want and not be killed for it.   For them we are grateful. 

Tragically, the effort to make America and the world safer and to defend freedom is not without an enormous cost to this country, a loss of lives, and many who will always bear the scars and wounds of war. Then  there are times when something quite unique might assist in helping to lessen the scars of war.   Max Lucado said, Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest...but about who came and never left your side."

Medicine is a treatment not a cure.  Improving the quality of a wounded warrior's life, and taking a big step toward wholeness once again, might just be found close by his side. 


"One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars: and the world will be better for this."
~Miguel de Cervantes

We ask for your financial assistance in helping us help our wounded warriors with PTSD.
