Inner Peace:

● If you can start the day without caffeine;

● If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;

● If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles; 

● If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it;

● If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;

● If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;

● If you can conquer tension without medical help;

● If you can relax without alcohol;

● If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;


…Then You Are Probably …

About the Author

LtCol Eugene B Richardson, USA (Retired) BA, MDiv, EdM, MS

Col Richardson has suffered with severe neuropathy for over 45 years. A 27 year military veteran and veteran of the Vietnam War, he was diagnosed with a progressive chronic peripheral neuropathy resulting in severe disability. This diagnosis has been confirmed as due to exposure to Agent Orange. It was not until 2010, 42 years after his exposure to Agent Orange, that his diagnosis was recognized by Veterans Affairs as service connected.
