November 11, 2020 Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day and that is why the feature video is Elton John Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me because that is exactly what we have done to veterans.

  
But these cuts I have 
They need love (they need love, they need love)
To help them heal
Oh, don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free, oh
'Cause losing everything is like the sun going down on me
Don't let the sun go down on me
When we survive the traumatic events that cause PTSD, we do not think about our veterans. Had it not been for Vietnam veterans returning from combat, no one would be doing much about what trauma does to the survivors. They came home and fought for the research and funding...that created all the responses we receive. From trauma units and crisis intervention teams, to mental health professionals and peer support, none of that would have happened, but we do not think about any of that.

Vietnam veterans fought for their generation, and all those who came before them as well as those they knew would come after them. The rest of Americans benefitted from their battles, and so did the rest of the world.

So from PTSD Patrol and all the veterans in our families, thank you! Thank you for all you were willing to do for all of us!


I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
It's much too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light
Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free, oh
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
I can't find
Oh, the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don't discard me, baby don't
Just because you think I mean, you harm
(Just because you think I mean you harm, oh)
But these cuts I have (cuts I have)
They need love (they need love, they need love) 
To help them heal
Oh, don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free, oh
'Cause losing everything is like the sun going down on me
Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else that I see, yeah
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free baby, oh

'Cause losing everything is like the sun going down on me
