Doug Bolton, the founder of the blog, Signs of Hope, which is at www.dailysignsofhope.com, has written a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It will be reaching out the many military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, and the many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides ever day. That is almost one every hour. Doug wants to help stop those statistics. Doug sent off his mini proposal to an agent who is very interested in his concept. We will update you when we hear more.
Ok…Here is the last installment of the chapters from the new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.”
After I share these chapters there will be future postings where there will be more in depth look at some of those same chapters. So be sure to subscribe so you can see some of the actually wording from some of the chapters.
+ Be sure to read at the end of this posting about a new section that will added to the book.
So here is the last of the chapter titles and some news of a new section for the book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the trenches of life:”
If Only I would Have..
We all have our, “If only I would haves… We look back and wonder what would have happened if you would have done something different when we face adversity. Something traumatic happened in my childhood that could have been totally different if I would have acted differently.
What Are You Saving Your Talents For?
We often set aside our abilities, our dreams, or our talents for reasons unknown. We need to take the first giant step and succeed.
Move Out of Your Home Called Depression.
Too many of us live at the corner of despair, and hopelessness. We need to know that we do not need to let depression overcome us. There are so many things we can do to cause a bright future in our lives.
Let’s Start a Ripple Effect
This final chapter shares how we should be the example to help others around us. It can the ripple effect like you see when you throw a pebble into a lake. The ripples keep going out farther and farther. Our influence can do the same thing.
+ This is the very first announcement of a new feature for the book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.”
There will an new added ending to the book. I have done some interviewing of actual soldiers of different branches of the military. There are some gut wrenching stories of facing death, losing of buddies, and near death experience. I have already interviewed two WWII veterans with near death experiences; one Vietnam veteran who saw his buddy die. Another Vietnam veteran who was medic that had several stories of scared young men wounded, and dying.
I have one more WWII nurse lined up, plus some more Vietnam , and Gulf war veterans to interview. I may be able to slip in a Korean veteran as well. This will one of the highlights of the book that will bring tears to your eyes, and have you proud of our veterans who put themselves in harms way.
To all you veterans:
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
