Remembrance Day and I cottoned on late to this fact – so I wanted to pay my respects, belatedly, to all who have lost their lives in war. Especially to those who have not lost their physical lives but their psychological wholeness, returned from horrors stripped of well being, doomed to suffer flashbacks and hyperarousal and numbing, hair trigger fight/flight moments, angry outbursts, despair, overwhelm and depression. Veterans who share a life narrative with victims of domestic violence and child abuse, tortured captives and asylum seekers.
Yes, I will remember you and feel for you. I know it’s hard.
