want to dedicate this to all those who have served or are serving our country, including their mother, father, family and friends, especially those who may have a loved one who gave their life for our freedom. And to over twenty-eight veterans I have met, -and their mother, father and siblings-, that have returned from May, 2012 to this year (01/2013), I realize even more so the challenges they and their family and friends face as they return home. The transition home can be a difficult one and I am so saddened when I hear that a returned veteran has taken their life! The only words I had for one soldier I met and greeted home lately was "You made it home; now please choose to make it through this!" And to those who have shared in the somewhat similar and various effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (P.T.S.D.), through abuse in any form, physically, mentally or spiritually, as well, abandonment like me, and looking for hope to overcome it and wanting to live life fully!
