Honestly, when I hear about terrorism in the world, I get a little numb. It’s always the same memorials and the awful newscasts. The physical and psychological wounds and scars people will have for years to come. Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a very real thing. Healing can begin the next day or years after the traumatic event. We’ve had so much terrorism in the world today. And, then our soldiers usually go to war a few months after the events and they have to deal with stuff too. Two resources for understanding PTSD are here and here. This, impart, is a Memorial Day post tied in with the recent tragic events. There is no shame in getting help. If you need it, see a professional.
