Happy Veterans Day to All My Fellow Veterans
Hello fellow veterans I'd like to take this time to say, "Thank you for your contributions to this country. Your bravery, sacrifice, and strength are not unnoticed, and we will be eternally grateful to you and your family for everything you have given to the country. I'd like to express my gratitude for all that you've done! Thank you for devoting your time, courage, and sacrifice to this country for all human beings."
Many Americans do not understand what it is like to walk in a soldier's boots once we've sworn into office to serve our country. Our decisions are no longer ours for the government owns us, literally. There are missions that we take and we cannot talk to others about due to the confidential nature of it all. Many things that a soldier endures that has long life effects when we rejoin civilian life.
PTSD is "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder" that can happen to more people than those that served in the military and is usually rooted from something that happened in childhood that was not dealt with and causes PTSD later in adulthood. Is is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event, either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
We never know who may be affected with this condition and that's why it's so very important to be kind to others when they may not be as kind to you. Caring and loving others go a long way and I just want to keep us all encouraged to make at least one person smile today and everyday. Do something nice for a veteran that you know just because you can.
We can collectively make the world a better place with intentional actions of love, care, and kindness towards one another.
