A beautiful moment from tonight's event in Milwaukee…

I knew I had to come when my sister sent me the Boswell link, but I had no idea how much it would mean to me. I read Eat, Pray, Love on my first deployment and it made me think and dream. I read it again during my second deployment and it helped create a strong desire to repair. I started a running program and listened to an audio version. Listening to your voice tonight reminded me of the emotional, mental, and physical healing process that you were there for. It moved me so much I was in tears as I brought my book for you to sign. I knew I had to stay for a picture. They were tears of joy as I think back to where I was and where I am now and how much I love my life today. Thank you!
