ptsd or where is my humanity really

The degree of PTSD is merely a testimony to the degree of a soldier's humanity at the very least.

'Stress' is a euphemism for reconnecting with one’s soul, for surely you have to somehow encase if you’re lucky or abscond the soul to act in such anti-human ways as war demands.

Those soldiers that do not suffer from PTSD have lost their humanity indefinitely. Those soldiers that do suffer, still have pieces of their soul left inside to try to save.
