“It takes a Warrior to heal a Warrior” - Native American Medicine Man
Our Country has an opportunity right now to honor, heal, and help the Warriors that dedicate their lives to serving our Country. For our future, we must do this.
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation." -- George Washington
The same applies to our Warriors serving here at home as First Responders.
Our Warriors sacrifice everyday for our freedom fighting in our Nation’s wars and keeping us safe here at home. They deserve our recognition for their sacrifice.
Our Warriors face mental, physical, emotional and external struggles with relationships, family, jobs and so on that often leads to feelings of despair and isolation. According to the VA, everyday 22 Veterans and 1 Active Duty Military person takes their life. And everyday, our First Responders respond to horrible tragedies they must mentally, physically, and emotionally deal with. As George Washington said, it is our duty to heal and honor our Warriors.
