PTSD Patrol Get Together

In 1967 a song came out by the Youngbloods "Get Together" and it filled people with hope. The song was so powerful it never stopped being played. 


It was a time to chaos and war, protests and peace marches. Families were being torn apart by everything, but the song offered another message of love.

When something happens to us, something so terrible that PTSD begins to take hold, the worst memory of it can become the most predominate one. Yet within that horrible memory, there also other memories of the people who came to help you. We live in very chaotic times now. We are surrounded by hateful, hurtful people who want to make us feel miserable so they feel better about themselves. We have natural disasters all over the country. We have protests and families being torn apart. We also have men and women doing whatever they can to make the road to recovery easier for you. If have said it often that we see what we choose to see. Now I am saying that what we you see is what you seek. Seek what is still good and you'll find it. Seek what is hopeful and you will be filled with it. Seek what is based on love and you will be empowered by it!

#BreakTheSilence and #TakeBackYourLife from #PTSD.


Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Some may come and some may
go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
I said, come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now
