“Surviving & Thriving” by Steve Sparks  Quote from this website…

“Steve Sparks, local author and Vietnam-era veteran of the U.S. Navy, will give a free talk on “Surviving and Thriving for Families Challenged with PTSD,” as part of the Celebration of Honor weekend.  Sparks casual, informative discussion will start at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, in the Conference Room at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, at 540 N.E. Highway 101.”
I so appreciate the opportunity to participate as a speaker at the upcoming Celebration of Honor in Lincoln City.  I am very happy to have my wife and soul-mate, Judy Sparks, with me at this event.  I am also grateful to my friends and neighbors who provided me with excellent ideas in the preparation of this most important and sensitive discussion of moral injury and PTSD.  I will be sharing two years of research from writing my book and blog, Families Living with PTSD & Moral Injury.  My book serves as the backdrop of my own family experience living and coping with PTSD during a time when we had no knowledge of the mental health implications and impact of life after trauma affecting warriors, 1st responders, loved ones, and others who suffer from traumatic life changing events.  I refer to this period of my life as, “the too terrible to remember ’50’s.”

I am looking forward to seeing both friends and family, and making new friends this coming Saturday Sept 21st 4pm, Lincoln City Cultural Center…  Hope you can join us for this event…
