Jennifer Needle in Her Arm: Healing from the Hell of My Daughter's Drug Addiction by Bonnie Kaye Pdf
Jennifer Needle in Her Arm explores the emotional turmoil that parents go through when they have either lost a child to drugs or have to deal with a child currently addicted to drugs. Bonnie Kaye, who lost her daughter Jennifer in 2002 at the age of 22, suffered the guilt and shame almost all good parents go through in the aftermath of losing a child to drugs. In this book, Kaye talks about the journey she and her daughter went through together, and how in the end, nothing she did changed the outcome. She shares some articles she wrote in the years following her loss to help people understand what parents go through with a drug-addicted child. Kaye has also included a number of heart-wrenching writings that Jennifer gave to her to share with others in hopes that they would read about her pain and not have her daily struggles of survival. One passage includes these words of despair and hope: Dear Addiction, What have I ever done to you to deserve all this pain and agony? You have taken everything from me. My family’s trust, my family’s sleep, my sleep, my apartment, car, jewelry, etc. But worst of all you’ve taken my sanity, my life, and me. I think of you every day. I even dream about you at night. I’m sure your only thoughts about me are to totally destroy me. I love you yet hate you so much. No matter how hard I fight, you are stronger. I’m 19 but feel 69 because of you. You have robbed me of my childhood. Because of you I have killed, robbed, sold drugs, sold myself, and hurt everyone close to me. You’re a liar!!!! You swore you would make things easier for me. You swore I wouldn’t have to worry about anything. You promised fun and heaven. But all you have given me is hurt and agony and a living hell. This is my life and I’m taking it back. I’m going to win this battle. I PROMISE. The book is comforting to parents who continue to suffer from shame, guilt, and feelings of helplessness. They will realize they are not alone--and they are not responsible.

Sometimes We Fall As Boys But Rise As Men by Thomas Green Iii Pdf
On April 24, 2004, Thomas Green III was driving a military truck down a dusty road in Iraq when an explosion ripped the wheel out of his hands. The injuries he sustained as a result of this attack changed his life forever. He joined the U.S. Army in 2001 and was deployed to Iraq in February 2004. Serving in Iraq and spending thirteen months in an Army hospital gave him a good look at war. Everybody knows the traditional story: soldiers leave home, get shot, and even die. But few know about the psychological effects of war. Whatever happened to him, he stood up again on his own two feet. At Walter Reed Army Medical Center, surrounded by other injured soldiers, he realized the importance of uplifting and inspiring each other. Sharing their stories helped get them through trying times. He felt that God wanted him to share his testimony, telling how He got him through this ordeal and changed his life forever. He commends Him for giving him the strength to put his story together. He even thanks Him for the pain, because it taught him how to lean on God.

Inspired by BTS' message of "love yourself, speak yourself" Love Yourself features 10 essays on self-love, care and healing from contributors around the world. According to BTS, to be human is to love; humans are love in physical form. Both BTS and their fans, ARMY, were created, and remain continuously united in love. The love that BTS speak of is complex and nuanced at times, but also can transcend cultural, language, and physical barriers. Love is BTS' call to action, they ask of us to learn to love ourselves and to warmly embrace others in whatever way we can. Amongst the pages of this book you will find a range of experiences and stories that share universal themes and truths. Some may be familiar to you, some may be new. These essays are not about BTS even as all the contributors are ARMY and have been deeply influenced by the group and fandom alike. These essays are personal accounts of the writers' lives that are linked to socio-cultural-political analyses and understandings for further context and, perhaps, to provide the reader with tools for understanding their own journey, too. Each essay provides a heartfelt examination of self-love as a journey, a work in progress. This is your call to action. It has two words, three syllables, and twelve letters. Love yourself. Say it out loud right now as you read it and you might be confused, because what exactly does it mean to love yourself? But say it while looking at yourself in the mirror with unwavering eye contact, and perhaps you'll start to understand what adventure is afoot. Perhaps you're already in the thick of it. Either way, it can't hurt to say it. Once more, for the sake of art: Love yourself.

Healing Your Grieving Heart After a Military Death by Bonnie Carroll,Alan D. Wolfelt Pdf
Practical methods for healing after the loss of a member of the military When a loved one is killed in the line of duty, this book affirms that survivors' grief is shaped by the unique circumstances of the death. Because military deaths are almost always sudden and violent, the traumatic nature of the loss creates a two-part grief—one focused on the manner in which the person died, the other focused on the long-term repercussions of life without this special person. This guide acknowledges the unique mixture of sadness, pride, anger, and blame that often characterizes grief after a military death, including in the event of a military suicide, and offers ideas for constructively expressing thoughts and feelings. Anyone whose life has been touched by a military death will find compassionate understanding and healing guidance in the pages of this handbook.
Healing the Wounded Giant by Michael E. O'Hanlon Pdf
The author considers the best balance between fiscal responsibility and national security in a period of continued economic stress. He believes that savings in the range of what Obama proposed in 2012 are the right goal for defense cost reductions in the coming years. He explains why cuts of the magnitude required by sequestration, and those suggested by the Bowles-Simpson and the Rivlin-Domenici plans for greater fiscal health, are too deep on strategic grounds, particularly in light of America's rebalancing toward Asia and ongoing turbulence in the Middle East.
