9/11, Twenty Years, A Celebration Of So Many People

9/11, Twenty Years, A Celebration Of So Many People

A TRIBUTE:

There is an enormous sense of gratitude for the men and women who served in the Military for their dedication and bravery, over so many years, in securing freedom, and we cannot thank them enough!

To those who lost their lives in NYC on that fateful day;

The deceased from the crash that occurred in the Pentagon building;

The courageous passengers who crashed their hijacked plane so that others could live;

The families and friends who mourn over their loved ones;

The survivors who are still in recovery, on so many levels, who can talk about their experiences from that miserable day,

And the rescue and recovery workers who went above and beyond their call of duty.

THANK YOU, AND WE LOVE YOU, FOR YOUR ULTIMATE SACRIFICE!!

Having Strong Coping Mechanisms, What Came Before

In certain instances, it is not so much what young people are told in their home environment growing up, but what they observed in that environment:  Learned behavior.  By watching the grownups deal with the busyness of complicated life situations in a calm manner, repeatedly, those young people are able to emulate those skills later in their own lives.  Those healthy skills are turned on automatically.

Strong coping mechanisms are important for a healthier mental existence.

Mental Health Difficulties, That Mind And Body Relationship

The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (2020) talks about how individuals can experience heart issues because of their mental health problems in, “Heart Disease and Mental Health Disorders | cdc.gov.”

The other complication: There is the potential that a heart issue can decrease the necessary supply of oxygen the heart is required to send to the brain.

A Message Regarding Mental Health Conditions

There are many people with mental health issues, but they fail to seek help from a professional. This lack of urgency can in turn result with disastrous brain health and lack of emotional stability.

We need to applaud those who do recognize they are experiencing issues, and are seeking help so that they can have a much healthier existence. We need to encourage their endeavors as they experience this incredible challenge.
