It is not too late to heal the wounds of war!
Unmourned loss from fallen comrades and unforgiven guilt and shame is a gaping hole in our society that can subtly and not-so-subtly rob Veterans of their vitality. Family members of Veterans are also affected; their wounds, too, often go unnoticed and untended. Complicating matters further is the gap in healthcare that fails to identify and intervene with SOUL INJURIES. Furthermore, civilians and citizens may not recognize how they can support the reintegration of Veterans back into society.
A ceremony has now been developed for Veterans and their families, healthcare providers, civilians and citizens to help Veterans and their families lay their burdens down. Unmourned losses and unforgiven guilt can find safe sanctuary so there can be peace…at last.
Please join us on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 8:30 AM for a Fallen Comrade Ceremony at the Crystal Bay Hotel located at 7401 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL 33710. Admission is free and open to the public.
The Fallen Comrade Ceremony is designed for Veterans and First Responders, their families and civilians to help them lay their burdens down. The Ceremony honors survivors who carry the burden of their comrades’ memory. Based on Native-American warrior welcoming-home rituals, the Ceremony restores hope for healing the Soul Injury® that Veterans and First Responders who serve in dangerous-duty assignments often carry.
While Memorial Day honors those who died in military service, the Fallen Comrade Ceremony honors those who survived and carry the burden of their fallen comrades’ memory. Safe sanctuary is provided for them to mourn the losses they have sustained, such as: comrades who died in battle, loss of physical/ mental health, loss of the self they had prior to the trauma, assault that occurred within their own ranks, or an unfair administrative action taken against them.
