Evening -

The event I attended today to help plan how to spread the word on this organization so more vets can participate was phenomenal.

Everyone was touched; everyone cried; some sobbed.  Vets spoke in their own words about how they have been helped, and saved in their work with Lee and Chris. Then, they help and save others.

I never understood in this way what it is like to be a vet, what it is like to return and be "dumped", what it is like to be declared okay when you're not, and what it is to fear suicide day and night.  Today was videotaped, and it will go up on this website sometime soon.  If you are looking for a place to help, this is it.  The work they are doing changes and saves lives.  The men and women who spoke today changed the lives of those of us who were there.  We are all softened, and will all view the word "warrior" and "service" with new heart and eyes.
