National PTSD Awareness Day (I)

For Veterans with PTSD

Antonio Canova Madness of Hercules

Hercules Firing Arrows at His Children, by Antonio Canova (1757—1822). Source unknown.

Almighty Father, our help and our shield: look with mercy upon thy servants who have suffered in the service of our country. Soothe their distress, and grant them a sure recovery from the wounds of heart and mind and spirit. Grant also that we, who have asked them to do so much for us, should not fail them in their time of need. All this we ask for the love of thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

In 2010, the U.S. Senate designated June 28th as National PTSD Awareness Day. In 2014, they designated the whole month of June as PTSD Awareness Month.
