    A True Horror Story or More Bad News

    Up until the phone call I received a few minutes ago, I was feeling quite fortunate and more than happy to pray for everyone who has such bad news lately. I still am but adding my sister and nephew to the list.
    My nephew Christopher has served in the military and been overseas fighting this terrible war - he's out now and married with 2 children.
    He had been working for a Sheriff's Dept. - lost that job and then was asked to come in for questioning about a complaint a prisoner had made. He took a polygraph and passed it, but today he was arrested and is being held without bond for the whole weekend!
    He is on suicide watch - this kid has been through too much - he has a bad back and suffers from PTSD - and now this?!!!
    I am in shock - I just don't get it! Now I am the one asking for prayers that this gets straightened out - I asked my sis if he has seen a lawyer and she said NOT TILL MONDAY - I just don't get it!!! In what world does this happen?

    Aw Kathy that is just horrible. I pray that things get sorted out and pretty darn soon. I am so sorry. I will certainly say prayers.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

      I got him in my prayers. I know some of the soldiers that came back from Iraq with PTSD. As if that weren't enough problems for them.

        This SHOULD NOT be happening in this country. Why can't he see a lawyer sooner? Did you call Legal Aid and ask why? We send over young men (my nephew included, ) and do not have the capacity to care for them when they come back suffering. I know I sound angry and I'm sorry, but my heart breaks for these young men. Prayers for all of you.

          Don and I just watched a documentary on PTSD of our recent war Veterans and how we expect folks to just step back into society as if nothing as happened to them while overseas.

          Prayers will be said and I hope that he gets legal representation asap plus medical support.

              Sending prayers! It just doesn't make sense. PTSD is real and I am aghast that this country does not do better for those who fight for our freedoms. I pray this is just a fluke and he'll be home where he belongs real soon.
              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                          I saw a show recently on our veterans and getting into trouble. In Texas the judge makes them attend 2 years of therapy from the military. It works! http://www.ncdsv.org/images/VIP_Vete...il_11-2011.pdf
