Simple Words

If you have read, "The Camouflaged Heart", you know that I talk about owning your trauma without comparison to the trauma of others. I have explained to many people that trauma is personal.  It is not something that can be compared or certainly not fairly compared. From what I have learned, there seems to be a common misconception that trauma is only about bodily injury, but I think what we are learning from the state of violence in our nation is that we are often traumatized by experiences that did not directly happen to our physical person. Families who were going about their day as if it were just another day, faced great tragedy and for many of them...what will be an ongoing trauma. You do not have to be present on the battleground to experience post-traumatic stress and trauma. This week has been a                                                               very, very unfortunate reminder of that. 

To all of our military families impacted by the loss of life in Tennessee, my heart goes out to all of you.  Sending your Marine or Sailor to war and having the relief of him coming home, only to lose him here is unthinkable. This is your trauma and there are many people mourning your loss along with you.
