I was challenged on Facebook to do 22 push-ups per day for 22 days to raise awareness for veterans committing suicide. I lost an army buddy of mine to suicide a few years ago so this challenge is very dear to my heart.
Did you know that veterans commit suicide after coming home from war? I’m not sure if it’s exactly 22 per day but any number is disheartening. To see a soldier join the Military, serve his country and then come home to take his own life saddens me. Soldiers build a bond in the military that just isn’t there most times when they return home. They become accustomed to certain standards, processes and procedures that just aren’t there when the return home. If you know a veteran please check on them. And if you don’t pray and seek out ways you can assist in getting resources to veterans in need.
For more information please reach out to your local U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs Office. #VetResources
I hope this motivation and inspiration is something for your situation to free and relax your mind as if you are on a vacation!
