In her book "Don't Cry For Me", Sharon Sala has made the most beautiful dedication- it brings tears
'"Soldiers are trained for battle- trained to fight to the death for country and their fellow soldiers. They are trained to be tough- and to follow orders without question. They accept that when they go to war they may not come back and they are willing to pay the sacrifice to keep their country free from tyranny.
They are trained to die- but no one has told them what to do when they come home in pieces, shattered in body, mind and spirit. The come home forever changed by what they've seen and what they've done in the name of war, and the only other people back home who truly understand how to function have either been cremated and scattered to the winds or lie buried six feet under.
I dedicate this book to the wounded warriors of our great nation, who have come home from one fight to fight again every night in their dreams.
I do not know your names, but I do cry for you.
You are my heroes.
