Let us say that you are a physically active person, proud of the abilities which you have worked and sweated to develop and hone. And then you are injured seriously enough to warrant time spent in a hospital. There is nothing to do for most of the hours of the day but to brood on what you have lost, and wonder if you will ever be able to regain full function. It would be tough to keep the blues at bay.
Now imagine that you are a soldier, and you are in the hospital because of enemy action. Maybe your injuries aren’t going to be temporary, maybe you won’t ever fully recover. How much worse would that be?
The Walter Reed Army Medical Center has a library of games and movies to try and keep morale up, but they need more material. We can help.
They have an Amazon Wish List set up. You don’t have to buy new, the used stuff will do just as well for a lending library. And you will be able to purchase more items for the same amount of cash. You could even have a DVD shipped to them for as little as $5.00 USD, less than most fast food lunch deals.
You could afford that. Right?
Keats described his depression by saying “I am in that temper that if I were under water I would scarcely kick to come to the top”. I think we can give them a hand before they go under.
