Remember last year? You invited me, a survivor of Military Sexual Trauma (MST), to your Summit for Veterans. It was the first time someone was invited to represent MST at a Canadian Veterans Summit. I was very honoured!
Here Is why I wanted to be there
Now Picture this...
Here I am, surrounded by war Veterans and sitting at a table with my name on it.
I am eating a delicious vegetarian sandwich while listening about homeless war veterans, marijuana treatments, Afghan war pension versus World War II pension, commemoration for war vets, transition services for war vets, support animals to help war veterans…
This is when things went wrong...
I publicly asked three basic questions about care for Military Sexual Trauma and nobody was able to answer them.
did you know?
I will not just sit and eat sandwiches. I will honour the invitation you sent to me by asking well prepared questions.
- See you next week!
