"Night Of Hope And Healing" Suicide Awareness And Prevention ~ Dinner

As the temperature dropped, and the snow fell the night of February 6th, the preparations for the evening's event was taking shape. 5pm the caterer arrived and set up the wonderful meal that was more like a family feast. As Mr. Vogel prepared the projector for the evenings power-point presentation, the presenter, retired 36-year U.S. Army veteran Chaplain Lieutenant Colonel Antonio Daggett, had arrived with his lovely wife, Veda and youngest, yet brilliant son Isaiah.

Not long afterward, dinner was served then Colonel Daggett delivered an incredible presentation. He drove the point of how cause and effect, stress, trauma, PTSD and psychological realities can alter a person's view of reality. No one knows how each person's brain interprets what that person has experienced. No one can un-see what they see. The colonel further explained how hope for tomorrow directly effects the way one sees and feels today. There are ways we can help.

The topic was hot, the mood was intense, the presentation was flawless and the reception was well received. A huge part of the message allowed those present to be able to identify some of the indicators that can lead to hopelessness, confusion as well as unhealthy thought patterns that can lead one to dark places.
