Update #2 – Hostile Environment Training

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your words of support and encouragement.  I couldn’t ask for a warmer, brighter safety blanket.  While you all have my back, I’ve been learning how to address myself and others in any emergency situations like finding myself in a mine field, taking mortar and artillery shelling, getting shot, dealing with an amputated limb, or with an object impaled in someone’s body! Here is a video showing the various simulations we were put through.

I leave tomorrow, Saturday, for Kabul and I now have to switch gears.  I have to go from this crazed training mode and ground myself to lead my theater of the oppressed training.  I am grateful for your words, love, and advice.  My dear sister Larraine sent a message with the following quote:

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.  ~Ambrose Redmoon

Until soon,
