Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him (Hardcover) So many people have suffered from PTSD and isolation, while it is the few who can truly inspire people to step into the sun of optimism. There are many lessons on what really matters in our humanity in the book, Until Tuesday, by former American Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan with Bret Witter that fit in formal history courses; it is steeped with authenticity. |
All Quiet on the Western Front, by Remarque and Animal Farm and 1984, by Orwell; real name Eric Authur Blair, wrote about the importance of fighting wars for the right reasons and how we as citizens must be the voices and arbiters of such decisions, rather than a few from those who profit from it. So if you appreciate independent thinking and an education of what elements exists in war settings of Iraq, and how people face insensitivity as to what veterans endure in war once home, then relate or begin to educate oneself by reading this book; or listen to the audio that carries the author's authentic voice.
This book gives a modern look to the human atrocities of war, the healing power of a dog with advanced emotional intelligence, and the need for laws that protect the rights of those who have served this country in armed forces, or simply need support in meeting daily coping needs. As an educator, writer and formally a psychotherapist, I recommend this book for classroom discussions, and for those who seek healing or direction toward better days.
