Prompt for the Day: “Honorific”


The actual post for the day as suggested by the people from the Daily Press division of Word Press was “FAQ”  did not strike any clean chord with me, so I resorted to a list of daily prompts from another source.  That source gave the following prompt for today: “Honorific”.  They also gave also gave the following words of inspiration to be followed or not as you choose-“October 16th is officially declared “Person X Day” — and you get to pick Person X. Tell us about someone who deserves to be commemorated.”

I think we should hold all of the serving military personnel, both past and present with a honorific sense of awe for their service to our country!  Think all Americans should thank our service people for the freedoms we experience in our daily lives.  Can think of no one else who deserves to be held with this type of high esteem, than them.

They sacrifice their free time, safety, and health in general to protect the homeland they come from.  Whether they are forced to fight on foreign soil with harsh conditions or work at a computer terminal here in America, they do it for us!

PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) is a real disease many of our soldiers end up suffering from.  They generally do not receive the help the need and are entitled to from their service!  Ends up leaving families and friends alienated from the soldier they used to know and love.  Do not understand how we can in good faith continue to abandon the mental husks of the soldiers who served our country!  They are in dire need of help from a psychiatric doctor who can possible help lead them in the right direction so that they can start healing.  Length of time needed for the healing should not be taken into consideration.  They need help no matter how long they will need to continue seeing a professional.  They earned the help by their service to our country!

    Hear hear! What an excellent point you raise. These women and men are the true heroes in our society and they need to be treated like royalty. Too often they return from over seas broken and damaged, and they are left to fall by the wayside. It’s not right and I for one do what I can to help out those who are suffering. I’m even presently involved in launching a new charity for the veterans in our country, but of course there’s a ton of red tape being thrown up in the way by the IRS… 😡
    Again though, you’ve written an excellent post, and I hope that people take notice and take ACTION. 💝M
