Choices when you come home

By Remy Benoit

When you come home from war you will be carrying too much to hold inside forever. You need time to come down, to readjust to being home, to finding your new self.

You will have witnessed terrible things.

You have a choice to make with them. You can let them make you cynical and bitter, or you can share the knowledge, the truths of war you have learned by telling your story. Writing it out will help you, your experience will help others.
You will find that the truth of your words will become paving stones to peace. Isn't that what you would want for your children and grandchildren?

I am here to help you find those words.
Your Words, Your Way.

Your donations help me continue my many years of work with our veterans. Thank you so much.
