PTSD PATROL started out of frustration! When the only message veterans have been hearing is a guess about them committing suicide, a group of us got fed up with having voices offering hope become suffocated by some using these suicides for their own pockets!
Sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for them at all.
Considering if they did not read the report they use for fundraising and attention getting, it is not hard to figure out this did not matter enough in the first place. Then again, if it had mattered, they would have joined forces with groups already out there working on saving more lives than trying to count the lost.
After almost 36 years now, I have seen far too much of the opposite results when these veterans discover they are not trapped by PTSD. Healing is more than possible! It is probable with the right help for their mind, body and spirit.
It is hard to understand PTSD but everyone can understand driving. You are in control over where you go, how you get there and yes, the road was cleared long before you got on it.
PTSD Patrol Sunday Morning Empowerment Zone videos are geared toward putting it all in the perspective of vehicles so that you understand the one you live in as much as the one you drive.
Most of the time I am in the videos along with my buddy Murray.
Other times some of my human buddies show up too. All of us have the same attitude. Nothing is impossible unless you settle for giving up!
It is your choice and your life. Get in and drive it!
