Captain Mykel Hawke weighs in with the following:
One of the many reasons I am supporting The HEALING THE WOUNDS Project is that we already have an increase of urban dwellers with a decrease of kids in the woods. Often, the wealthier folks don’t have time and the middle class folks don’t have the dime to take their kids out and teach them about nature. This is frequently the case for families of those who serve with both parents working to make ends meet.
Now, minus one from that equation and the problem is exacerbated, not only by the loss of time and dime to do anything for and with the kids, by the struggling and surviving parent, but the additional pain, suffering and loss of both the family member, as well as the support that was lost with their sacrifice.
When these folks who pay the ultimate price for serving are taken from us, there is a tremendous void in the lives of their children. These are usually great kids following in the steps of their parents. Often these kids become exposed to many pitfalls of life such as drugs and depression as a negative coping mechanisms.
What HEALING THE WOUNDS does is to help these kids and society on many levels. Getting the children into a new environment and out of the sad and lonely space is a first step.
Teaching them outdoor skills their lost parent might have, helps re-connect them to nature, peace, life, family, people and society as a whole. It’s an old fashioned notion in a modern era of psychotherapy and mental medication where we simply remind the kids of what the world has to offer, what life is really all about, to help them go through the grieving process and apprecaite the cycle of life.
The end result, is healthier, happier children, that can return to society, grow and contribute with a better attitude.
The bottom line is that HEALING THE WOUNDS is one of the best ways to help our Heroes’ Kids.
