As a literary agent I have had the pleasure of representing some of the finest authors and teachers in the world ranging from Eckhart Tolle to Jack Canfield and Marianne Williamson. What I have learned from them is that now is the time to speak up. Our world is at a crisis point and it is essential that aware and courageous people focus their efforts on communicating both the nature of our current crisis as well as the direction for future solutions in every way possible. Peacelink is an organization that is making a significant difference in bringing younger generation voices together with wise teachers and innovators. Together these groups can and will make a difference.
My current focus is on the plight of our veterans. More than 8000 veterans have committed suicide in just the last ten years. That is more deaths than from combat in this same time frame. This is a travesty and is avoidable. Peacelink this year has attracted the participation of Congressman Ryan. Congressman Ryan is promoting the use of meditation and other non-traditional and holistic approaches towards assisting our veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress and other emotional and physical traumas. We are looking at a population of more than 100,000 veterans. Our traditional medical facilities cannot treat this number of veterans with our present resources. We must find alternative low cost solutions. Peacelink is providing a forum not just for Congressman Ryan but for other innovative health experts as well.
I have personally invited Dr. Nisha Money, a former Air Force surgeon and present President of Global Healing Initiatives Institute to participate in the upcoming Peacelink event. Dr. Money has undertaken extensive research with our veterans to explore viable solutions that address both the medical and social challenges of our veterans. Veterans make up as much as 20 percent of our homeless population and the majority of returning veterans are either unemployed or underemployed. This is a preventable travesty. I am also hoping to have the participation of innovative holistic and alternative healing experts such as Dr. Uwe Albrecht of Germany and Dr. and Master Sha of China and Canada. Working with these types of innovative and courageous leaders is what Peacelink is all about. Join us for this event and join Peacelink to make a significant positive difference in the lives of veterans and your own life.
