"Eternal father, strong to save, whose arm dost bind the restless wave" "Protect the one we love at home" "O hear us when we cry to thee" "For those in peril on the sea" "Our brethren shield in danger's hour" "Most holy spirit who didst brood upon the chaos dark and rude" "And bid its angry tumult cease" "And hushed their raging at thy word" "Protect them wheresoe'er they go" "And give, for wild confusion, peace".
The tragedies and traumas of war are enormous and the consequences of it change forever the lives of those who return as well as the lives of loved ones and friends of those who do and do not return. For many veterans the psychological battles continue long after combat deployments end. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder significantly affects many people and is not limited solely to war trauma. In this volume of hope and healing the authors recount their ongoing journey to hope. In an intensely personal yet broadly applicable discussion of PTSD, Mike and Kathy Langston provide encouragement and hope for all who struggle with the ravages of PTSD or who love someone who struggles with it. This is a powerful story proclaiming that recovery is possible and that the past need not control the present or the future. ~ AMAZON:
