      Without writing I would never have coped with the emotional instability that I've had all my life. I can only imagine how it is for those that have seen war. I will never undervalue what writing can do, and as an emotional & spiritual outlet it is simply magical.

      It's hard to overestimate how writing can heal long scarred over wounds that every veteran inevitably has. These stories and poems also have the power of communicating a near impossible message to non-veterans, those hurt by war, those hurt by tradgedy, anyone who has ever suffered and asked the question "why?" No one will read this book and come away unchanged.

      This group has helped me get back on track as I've worked to deal with and overcome my personal struggles with PTSD. Amazing group of people that do this out of the goodness of their hearts.
