Why: To ACTIVELY help take the first step in SAVING LIVES
ASN will launch their National “I Choose to Live” Oath Challenge to help prevent veteran/military suicides and start to LIVE and choose to LIVE not focus on our battles but on our blessings and reasons to stay alive. We believe this is so much more than a# or a statistic. It is about individual lives and brains. PTS, TBI, Demons and life experiences are all dramatically individual and impact EVERYONE differently. There is NO one size fits all cure, treatment or way of help. There are many but there MUST be a FIRST step.
Like in the 12 step programs that have been immensely successful throughout the world for decades we fully believe brain health and the fight for a healthy life worth living starts with that first step, the “I Choose to Live” Oath. Our military members start their careers with the Oath to serve the nation, they must take that same oath when they reenlist and they NEVER forget that oath long after their days in the service are over, so in that same vein we have created a lifelong Oath for our veterans/military community.
This will be the first step in healing and healthy living. A lifelong Oath to live, to admit they are not alone and that they will choose 10 key principals for a life worth living and will be accountable to their battle buddies. This oath has been placed on pocket cards to always be with them, with the veteran crisis line on the back so at any given moment there is always a resource available.
We will launch the Oath challenge at Freedom Fest Colorado on Saturday June 17, 2017 where we will ask all vets in attendance to take the oath, then to post a video message taking the oath and upload it to their social media challenging their fellow vets to do the same and so on. Spreading like wildfire. Veterans/Military can contact ASN to receive their own oath cards via mail and even obtain extras so when they are around others in need they can have them take the oath right then and there give them the card and carry it forward. Taking that first step.
Every great journey begins with that first step and we are praying this gets those struggling and those who have been fighting some dark demons to take that first step. We DO This Together! We are in the process of recreating a portal for our website that will (we hope – in the near future) incorporate many of the treatment programs across the country that are out there, many of which do not have the marketing budgets, big PR dollars and savvy to get to the masses. We all need to collaborate and work together to reach our military/veteran community.
It all starts with that FIRST step! I choose to LIVE! #####
