With the Memorial Day holiday, I am aware that this is a difficult day for those who have lost a loved one in the service of our country. For many people the Memorial Day holiday kicks off the summer as they celebrate with barbeque and corn-on-the-cob. But for those who have lost a loved one, it is a bittersweet day to remember and honor their loved one. Let us remember those who have given their lives, and also honor their families and the veterans who have served our country, too.
As June begins this week, our nation also observes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Month. PTSD is the critical issue that is WMU’s focus for Project HELP. During this week as we think of those who have served in the military of our country, there are several things you can do to become more aware of this issue.
Though military personnel are not the only persons who may suffer from PTSD, this week as we celebrate Memorial Day it is fitting to focus on those in the military and their families. With thankfulness for their service, let us pray for God’s healing peace to surround those with PTSD.
