Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

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.
