**SEIZE THE HIGH GROUND**
It has taken me 9 years to build what I am now after being blown up by an IED in Afghanistan. 3 years of it was going through over 30 surgeries including the loss of my left leg, severe trauma to my right arm, right leg, lower back fracture, 2nd & 3rd degree burns, TBI and endless hours of painful therapy. 2 years in a wheel chair and 3 years just to be fully walking again surgery free.
4 years to build back my self worth & self confidence. To get through depression, drinking, prescription drug abuse, anger & guilt.
The road has had it's ups & it's downs, it's failures & it's triumphs, it's second thoughts & it's over comings, it's can not's & will do's. How was I able to get through it? How was I able to mentally push myself? How did I get through the physical & mental barriers?
It was waking up everyday, looking at myself in the mirror and telling myself that I was a god damn US Army Airborne Infantry Staff Sergeant & I may no longer be leading soldiers into battle, but I could lead people to HOPE! That I will not quit on all of you, so you don't quit on me!
The battle will be rough, there are and will be no easy days! The fight is tiring, exhausting & mentally tough! I promise if you stay in the fight, you don't quit and you keep pushing we will "SEIZE THE HIGH GROUND" and we will defeat the physical & mental enemy inside us TOGETHER, it can be and will be done!
Everyday tell yourself DON'T QUIT! THAT YOU WILL STAY IN THE FIGHT AND THAT YOU CAN NOT AND WILL NOT BE DEFEATED BY YOURSELF!
**NOW DON'T TELL ME YOU CAN'T, SHOW ME YOU WILL!
