“Community building is the most important action of our century. As individuals, we have suffered tremendously. Due to the predominance of individualism, family are breaking down, and society has become deeply divided. For the twenty-first century to be of time of spirituality, the spirit of togetherness must guide us. We should learn to do things together, to share our ideas and the deep aspiration in our hearts. We have to learn to see the shanga, the community of spiritual support, as our own body. We need each other in other to practice solidity, freedom, and compassion so that we can remind each other that there’s always hope.”
Thich Nath Hahn, Vietnamese Monk, Zen Master, peace activist, and founder of the Plum Village Tradition.

“A Raw Memoir Chronicles Army Veteran’s Harrowing Struggle with PTSD In a Broken, “Deaf” Support System.”
It’s hard for anyone, particularly men, to step forward when they’re struggling and ask for help. I want to put my story out there, with uninhibited truth, to help others understand they’re not weak when asking for help. Bottling your emotions up is a recipe for disaster, either for yourself or those around you. Please turn to those you love, and those who are qualified – and ask for the help you need. A new life of contentment and perspective can be found; you don’t have to go to prison like I did to find it.”
