Had a very stressful day teaching archery to the Wounded Warriors. One guy sufferring from PTSD came close to whacking me when I asked him to stop using the F word. His superiors dragged him away and calmed him down and the class continued.
Running in the forest in the dark and the storm was childs play by comparison.

    Oy, must have been quite exciting *shows stiff upperlip* . But, no joke, you must have felt lousy after that, given that bows and arrows are near... Good to run it off afterwards.

    Oh sweetie, I bet that was an awful experience. I'm so glad you ran and cried it off in your beautiful forest.

    'Flapjack'? 'Ford Fiesta'? In any case, your run sounded like the perfect tonic :)

    Sounds like a very meaningful job you've got yourself Julia. I admire people that give of themselves to help others. Well done. Nice run in the woods to get rid of the demons.

    Julia, it's angels like you that make the difference. After 20+ years in the military and multiple deployments in very unfriendly places, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you do. We didn't have that kind of support when I was in. Thank you!
