For those that follow The Sandbagtimes Magazine, and the daily news updates, you will know that Suicide and PTSD are two of the key issues we deal with almost daily. The deaths from related injuries this year are shocking to say the least, another 2 in the last week! The video below is just a way of raising the awareness for Veterans Suicides, and the demons faced through PTSD. Sadly there are a number of new faces in this latest release. Not everyone wants help, and sometimes it is down to family and friends to recognise when there is an issue, and act on their behalf. Thankfully, there are organisations out there (too many to mention), that are proactive in their approach to helping folks that are in need. Icarus Online, and Veterans United Against Suicide are just two, and I would like to thank them for the ongoing work they do, without which, the “cast” in these videos would be much bigger.
Could I ask that you share this post/video far and wide, as we continue to raise awareness, and fight this crippling silent killer.
Music and lyrics in the clip done by “Pablo” Snow, from the album “A Song For A Hero”, a brilliant album written to support Veterans in their search for inner peace!
