Along with the rest of the country I am deeply saddened and disturbed by the tragic massacre that took place at Fort Hood. The many articles that have been spawned since this heinous act remind me how as a nation we do things backwards: responding to crisis versus effectively working on prevention.
Now that the veil of silence has been lifted from this military community we learn of the numerous suicides that have occurred there, the countless acts of domestic violence, and the understaffed overworked individuals who are attempting to help.
A tragedy that screams to the public “THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY COSTS OF WAR” sighting post-traumatic-stress-syndrome as a very real condition and the many men and women who suffer from it.
