Today's #VeteranOfTheDay is Rhonda Cornum of the U.S. Army. Rhonda was a flight surgeon aboard a Black Hawk helicopter on a search and rescue mission during Operation Desert Storm. The helicopter was shot down and she suffered two broken arms, a broken finger and a gunshot wound among other injuries. "I do remember thinking, one, that I was going to die, and secondly, at least I was going to die doing something honorable," Rhonda said about the helo going down. Rhonda was captured and held as a prisoner of war.

Rhonda later commanded the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and became the command surgeon for United States Army Forces Command. She retired in 2012.

Thank you for your service, Rhonda!

This is a truth, and we can make ripples or waves, we can do good or we can wrong.  No matter what we do there is a ripple effect.  Practicing "Mindfulness" help me to make the right decision.  But I  confess I sometimes forget mindfulness and then my actions do harm.

Thank the great Spirit within for all that life brings. All is a gift; the sweet as well as the bitter. All is for your growth, freedom and celebration. Be happy. This is blessedness. When you affirm your own rightness in the universe, then you co-operate and communicate with others easily and spontaneously as part of your own nature. This is compassion.
