#1 Take Your Life...

We hear it all the time. "He took his life." "I want to take my life." We consistently strive to create a shift of perspective with the veterans we serve.  So, I want you to take this statement and flip the perspective.  I want you to write about WHERE you want to "take your life" and how your daily choices dictate the direction of your desired outcome.  When completed, email to Andrew at ajones@operationshockwave.org
