“High Ground” is a very moving documentary…

“HIGH GROUND is a portrayal a group of injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as they undertake an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. As the soldiers grow together as a team, their injuries and PTSD become another challenge to overcome. Leading the way is blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a group of guides who first climbed Mt. Everest ten years earlier. With nearly every military branch represented, the eleven veterans and their guides set out on an emotional journey in an attempt to heal their wounds, both physical and mental.”

I have learned from my own experience of healing from severe trauma and in observing others, including combat veterans, that life after war is best served by teaming up with obsessively motivated high achievers with hyper vigilance and hyper arousal behaviors.  When you connect with these like minded men and women, you can accomplish anything you set out to do.  There is no goal you can’t attain, no mountain high enough you can’t climb.  Nothing can get in your way; absolutely nothing can stop you from climbing to the top of the world in whatever endeavor you take on.  Team up with people you can trust with your life and who always have your back and it is virtually a win, win, win.

This new film, High Ground, proves the power of positive thinking once again.  The team of heroes start out with big challenges to overcome and still get it done.  This is an amazing story and one that will make a difference in your life and others you know.  Please view the trailer and see the entire film.
