We all know pain. We all know loss. And every time we hear we have lost another spouse or veteran to suicide, we grieve to our core and we are frightened. Because we know what it feels like to be alone and in pain. To feel lost and misunderstood. To b...e the only ones searching for a way out, and to be so dog tired that we just want to quit. But if you are reading this, you know differently. Join Her War, Her Voice! and Not Alone in our rally cry. Help us scream from the top of the mountain, "You are not alone." Looking for a way to speak? Here's how: We are looking for mixed media to reach out to our fellow fighters. We all have distinct voices and we all have strengths to express our fight. Our love. And our stories. We are asking you to join us by letting us know how YOU handled these feelings. Send us your thoughts, your words, your art... If you are willing to talk to us over the phone or Skype, we'd be honored to use your voice. We cannot afford to lose ourselves or another behind this wall of silence. We need you to help us tear it down. It's time that our brothers and sisters learn that they are loved. They are seen. And they are understood. This will be our battle cry. Across ranks. Across branches. For us. By us. If you are interested in joining our battle cry, email your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org If you ever wanted to stand and make your voice heard, this is your chance. Join us. Please, spread this far and wide and help us rally in a firm stance. No more.
