There has been a terrible tragedy in a friend's life. Her brother in law, an ex-soldier, took his life a couple of days ago and I have been looking after her little boy. A 2 1/2 year old staying over doesn't leave me much time for sewing, so I don't have any of my own stitching to share.
No matter whether you accept or not the reasons for our troops to serve in overseas conflict, I think no one can deny soldiers see things which no human being should witness. I recently listened to a podcast of Major General John Cantwell talking to Richard Fidler. I found it extremely moving and thought provoking and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of PTS disorder suffered by our troops. You can hear it HERE.
