What I've done so far this month
If anyone is struggling with PTS, and the thought of su***de is popping up more and more as a solution, check us out. My name is Keith McDonald, the Regional Director for here in the DFW area. We have a solution that eliminates those suicidal thoughts by providing purpose for your trauma. This happens in the form of you becoming a mentor to other veterans and first responders, going through what you have. We train you then once certified, we pay you a salery. We believe that you will never fully heal until you take the trauma and use it to help another. This gives you a purpose and answers all you questions "why did this happen to me". "what do I do with this". You take it and help others and whatever happened, didn't happen in vain. I'm not just the regional director, I'm also a participant in this amazing program. It saved my life.

The number is on the website. Or call me anytime 469-492-8974
Her hair was up in a ponytail, her favorite dress tied with a bow. Today was Daddy's Day at school, and she couldn't wait to go. But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home. Why the kids might not understand, if she went to school alone. But she was not afraid; she knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates of why he wasn't there today. But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone. And that was why once again, she tried to keep her daughter home. But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all, about a dad she never sees, a dad who never calls. There were daddies along the wall in back, for everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently, anxious in their seats. One by one the teacher called a student from the class, to introduce their daddy, as seconds slowly passed. At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare, each of them was searching, a man who wasn't there. 'Where's her daddy at?' she heard a boy call out. 'She probably doesn't have one,' another student dared to shout. And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say, 'Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day.' The words did not offend her, as she smiled up at her Mom, and looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on. And with hands behind her back, slowly she began to speak. And out from the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique. 'My Daddy couldn't be here, because he lives so far away. But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day. And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know, all about my daddy, and how much he loves me so. He loved to tell me stories, he taught me to ride my bike, and he surprised me with pink roses, and taught me to fly a kite. We used to share fudge sundaes, and ice cream in a cone, and though you cannot see him, I'm not standing here alone. 'Cause my daddy's always with me, even though we are apart, I know because he told me, he'll forever be in my heart. ‘With that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest, feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress. And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears, proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years. She stood up for the love of a man not in her life, doing what was best for her, doing what was right. And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd, she finished with a voice so soft, but its message clear and loud. 'I love my daddy very much, he's my shining star, and if he could, he'd be here, but heaven's just too far. You see he is a soldier and died just this past year, when a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught the world to fear. But sometimes when I close my eyes, it's like he never went away.' And then she closed her eyes, and saw him there that day. And to her mother’s amazement, she witnessed with surprise. A room full of daddies and children, all starting to close their eyes. Who knows what they saw before them, who knows what they felt inside. Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him at her side. 'I know you're with me Daddy,' to the silence she called out. And what happened next made believers, of those once filled with doubt. Not one in that room could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed. But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant long-stemmed rose. And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, by the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, that heaven is never too far.
Heroes for Hope is extremely excited to announce that BrothersKeepers is the military/veteran organization that will benefit from our 6th Annual Heroes for Hope 5K Run/Walk, Kids Marathon, and 1 Mile Walk of Valor along with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Heroes for Hope.

From Brothers Keepers website:
Why did we found BrothersKeepers? That’s a gritty story, so hold on for a wild ride. It all began with a guy named Jack Fanning. Even when we were all buddies at school, Jack was a thrill seeker. He found the perfect career as an elite Air Force Special Operations Combat Controller where he got to experience the “extreme sports” side of the military. He served our country on six tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, but it was a routine training exercise that nearly killed him.

Jack’s life changed forever in 2010 when he parachuted into a blacked-out drop zone. His night vision goggles came loose, so he couldn’t navigate safely. He hit the ground hard enough to break his neck. By the grace of God, the strobe on his headgear went off. Jack’s best friend found him struggling to stay alive, and he was rushed to surgery.

In a split second, Jack went from being superhuman to being paralyzed, with injuries that left him unable to move from the neck down. That moment impacted all of his friends and family as well. All of us, especially Jack, became totally committed to finding creative ways to help others facing similar challenges.

Like Jack always says, “If I can do stuff like this, anyone can.” Most of us aren’t crazy enough to do half the things able-bodied that he does as a quadriplegic (like jumping out of airplanes and setting a world record for diving). But we have learned a lesson about developing the courage and toughness to keep going strong in the face of any challenge. That’s why we’ll never give up on those who have sacrificed so much to serve our country and our community.

BrothersKeepers is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit providing once-in-a-lifetime experiential retreats and ongoing support that offers profound healing and fellowship for wounded veterans, first responders, and their families.
