    How Military Families Deal with Having a Child with a Congenital Heart Defect

    in Health

    Military families lead a very different life than civilian families do. Military families come from all walks of life and, when their children are diagnosed with heart defects, the challenges can vary according to location, branch of service, and of course separations that come at the most unexpected times. Despite these challenges, military families try their best to find ways to balance all aspects of their lives with a positive attitude. When a child is born to a military family and that child has birth defects, the one thing most families want is comfort -- and oftentimes comfort is found in what is familiar but many of our military families are not afforded that luxury. How do military families deal with having a child with a heart defect? What special challenges do they face? Who can help them through the difficulties associated with having a child who needs surgery in the first days or months of a baby's life and will require lifelong care?

    Project Sanctuary: Helping Military Families Heal

    in Family

    Named one of five chosen charities, Project Sanctuary was recognized for "The People's Choice Winner" of the Joining Forces Community Challenge by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. Their extraordinary effort to improve the lives of military families was celebrated in the prestigious award ceremony in 2012. 


    Project Sanctuary believes the whole family serves, from the battle-zone to the home-front. The award-winning organization provides military families with supportive care, education, and innovative services -- all through outdoor therapeutic retreats. Of the hundreds of families who have attended their retreats, 90% are still married and zero suicides have been reported. Program outcomes such as that are highly commendable in this era of intense military stress, especially given the millions of military families soon to transition to civilian life.


    "After reading that the rates of child abuse and neglect triple when a parent is deployed, Heather Ehlee was moved to do something and founded Project Sanctuary in 2007." As a Registered Nurse with more than 20 years experience, she reached out to gain community support and further education, plus a leadership team made up of military veterans. During this episode, we'll have the pleasure of introducing listeners to Jason Strickland, the Chief Development Officer at Project Sanctuary. Jason is a 20-year US Army retired Intelligence Officer who's served all over the world. We'll talk with him about the future and mission of this healing organization, as well as his role in forging new relationships to build visibility and impact. 


    Join us on Monday, February 17th at 7pm EST in this dynamic conversation about sustaining hope in the lives of military families.

    in Military

     
    It is not just the soldier who serves.  Our military family members may not enlist, but they do serve, and they need our support.  Military and veteran families must cope with many situations that civilians will never face.  Join us for a discussion on VOW Talk Radio, Tuesday, June 5, at 7:00 pm (EDT) about the issues that redefine the way our military and veteran families live out every day life, and the support services available to meet their needs.
    Veronica La Duke will be joining the VOW Talk Radio team to share about the VFW National Home for Children, which serves as a living memorial to America’s veterans by helping military and veteran families through challenging times and equipping them for future success.
    The VFW National Home for Children has a variety of services including connecting families with supportive services and resources in their own communities, as well as providing on-campus programs which include support for military families facing deployment challenges, veterans juggling VA Vocational Rehabilitation with family obligations, and other difficult situations that may arise.

  • WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    What has the Black Panthers accomplished in the black community so far and what should be our goals going forward.  As a people we are unifying towards the inevitable  Revolution against the slave holders society in the 21st Century and it is becoming apparent that they are scared.  Since the killing of Black People has escalated in this country the Black Panthers have been there to organize and show the people that we must fight the White Establishment Power Structure.  


    We established three major programs that became a threat to the idea of a divided people in the 1960’s.  The free breakfast and lunch Program in schools for low income families, we realized that our children could not perform as well in school distracted by hunger.  Then we established the Doctors program of black doctors who went from door to door testing for the devastating sickle cell disease. The most successful voter registration program and self defense programs of martial arts classes for our young men. As well as weapons registration an purchase of guns for any civic organization outside of the US military and established the open display of weapons according to our Second Amendment Rights. With this knowledge we improved the quality of Black life in America and moved out of the Jim Crow era.


    Now that we have done these things what we have coming for the People is Education of the masses on-line the EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZZ UNIVERSITY beginning this month.  Now there are some crucial programs we must create, first we must establish real Hospitals for our people to receive fair and impartial medical services.  Second we must teach our people that Healthy eating is the best medicines we can practice and establish FROM THE FARM TO THE TABLE PROGRAMS and Fresh Seafood Programs.
