Why We’re Here

A Cleveland-area man crashed his Dodge Challenger into a convenience store. He climbed out of his car, hazard lights flashing, and announced to the stunned clerk that he needed a beer.

This sounds like the beginning of a bad joke until you learn that the man is a veteran. He was, apparently, in the midst of deep emotional turmoil due to service-related post-traumatic stress.

No one should ever find themselves in such a desperate place. No one should ever feel so alone. There can never be enough emphasis placed on the importance of the relationships we build with one another.
