We gave to our country, in ways that no one should have to.. We gave our minds, body and souls; but we did not do so to become Victims! Silence was pressed upon us, and torment was a daily fact of life after we gave what we were forced to give; which was not a part of our oath of office.
Often, our silence has destroyed our lives, even after our obligations were terminated; either by our own fulfillment of original obligations, or terminated by our superiors prematurely. The suffering in silence, for years and even decades, losing families, friends and careers; not able to trust or connect with others. Not able to trust even ourselves, much less others.
IT's Time It Comes To An End! It's Time to Stand Up and Shout!
Our ghosts and demons be put on notice, that we are done dealing their intrusions and we are going to break our silence! It is not enough for us to keep the specter of our past, lurking in the shadows; we must let them out of our minds and tell someone. It is time for us to consider letting the system know, that we are tired of being victims and need to move our lives to survivorship, so we can live our lives and move forward in a productive and positive way.
