We may collectively be failing to deal with the stress imposed upon us by the worst domestic attack on our soil. While we must rightly hunt down the perpetrators, another danger lurks. Having little experience in dealing properly with a trauma of this magnitude, we may be slowly losing our humanity. 

The kind of stress to which I am alluding can make us better or it can make us bitter, depending upon how we rise to the occasion. Many of us may be uncomfortable with the idea, but there is an evil that opposes the well-being of mankind. Just as it is meant that the most fit creatures survive the weakest, the survival of the fittest, so it is that our most noble instincts ought to rise in the face of temptation. What differentiates humans from animals is our ennobling consciousness. Knowing how to mobilize its inherent, overriding influence to stress would not only help us survive, it would also bring about a kingdom of heaven on earth.

Consider A Donation

Dear Friends; I dislike asking for financial support, but, at the same time, I have realized that, if I do not properly express the pressing financial needs that do exist, the FHU could simply cease to exist, and separately, I would have denied my listeners the chance to have grace in both supporting my program, and the organization I founded over 50 years ago, and “Paying Forward” to others the help they’ve received throughout the years. Today I ask for your support in helping me help others, especially our active service members, military veterans, first responders and their families. Suicides from PTSD are down from 22 to 20 per day. But that’s 20 per day too many. You can help me help them. I deeply appreciate your ongoing support at this critical time.  THANK YOU! Roy Masters
