This week, in honor of Veterans Day, we celebrate the men and women who have served our country, who today are channeling that impulse to serve to make a difference in their communities. Meet Daily Point of Light Award honoree, Sean Gobin.
Sometimes a walk in the woods isn’t just a walk in the woods.
Sometimes, that walk is a healing journey, a revitalizing chance to process, reflect and rediscover faith in humanity and oneself.
Remembering and honoring the men and women who have given their lives in service to our country should involve more than speeches, wreathes, and department store sales. Anyone who has lost a loved one to war understands the devastation of combat. Those who survive the battles often return with a lifetime of physical and emotional injuries. Instead of receiving special care when they come home, our veterans all too often find themselves on the fringes of the society they fought to protect.
