The Mary Mac Show | Memorial Day | Honoring Our Bravest

276240_100000410189176_563033050_nIn Episode 130, we honor the memory of those who were killed in the military and how we are affected by their deaths.

Each year when this day rolls around, I am reminded of all the sacrifice a family makes when their loved one goes away to protect the freedoms citizens of all countries enjoy each day.

And while I’m so amazed at what it takes to be in the military and fight overseas with the constant threat of being killed, if they’re in a combat situation, I feel it’s also important to recognize the sacrifices a family makes throughout the entire tour.

A spouse who is left to raise a young family by themselves perhaps on a military base. The inadequate stipend they are given to raise that family. The increased level of responsibility they must endure.

And if their beloved is killed, they are left to raise that family alone.

Today I salute not only the veterans and remember all those who were killed to secure our freedoms, but for all the family members who are or have grieved a military family member’s death and the difficult road to recovery on an emotional as well as financial level.

I salute you!

The Mary Mac Show | Memorial Day | Remembering Our Bravest

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 78, we honor the memory of those who were killed in the military and how we are affected by their deaths.

If we have family who are service members, we understand the sacrifice entire families make to serve our countries. It’s not just the person who is serving, it is also the rest of the family who has to reorganize their lives without the parent who helps raise the family.

And sometimes these are very long stretches and multiple deployments for these men and women.

But if your family does not have a person serving in the military, perhaps this is unknown to you.

Yet I want you to realize the great sacrifice these families endure, for the benefit of the rest of our citizens. And not just the wives and husbands, but the young ones, too.

And when someone in the military is killed, the families’ entire lives are uprooted.

Please remember our fallen heroes this weekend and when you hear of a bereaved military widow or widower, please help them in any way you can.

The Mary Mac Show | When You Couldn’t Say Goodbye

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week, on my podcast, we discuss what we go through when we couldn’t say goodbye to someone we loved.

Whether it’s Covid and we weren’t allowed in a hospital or healthcare setting, or earthquakes, avalanches, tornadoes, floods, fires, hurricanes, tsunami, cyclones, explosions, car or plane crashes, all these prevent us to say goodbye if we were not present at these scenes.

There were also sudden death like heart attacks, strokes, homicide, suicide, even terrorism.

And we must remember all the military deaths, especially their bodies were so mutilated or affected by an explosion and there were only small parts or nothing to bury. Many of our men and women, who sacrificed their life for your freedom, never came home at all.

Join me in listening in to Episode 39 to take a look at how to deal with our grief when we couldn’t be with them when they died.

Additional Notes:

Visit Brad Yates’ youtube channel will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. His videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward. Here are two specific videos that will help you.

Marisa Peer’s “Loving Yourself” and “I Am Enough” – these are wonderful videos – must watch!

Here are some meditation music video choices to help you rest.

The Mary Mac Show | Memorial Day | Remembering Their Ultimate Sacrifice

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week we commemorate our military men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country – they have died to keep our citizens free and safe.

In other parts of the world, each country honors their military, perhaps not at this exact time, but nonetheless, losing a loved one who has served in your country’s military is a difficult loss.

Some military, in various countries, cannot be trusted and this makes it even more difficult.

In Episode 25, we discuss our pain after someone we love, who was serving in the military, is killed in action and how our lives are suddenly turned upside down.

Below are various links that can put you in touch with other families who are also grieving a military death. Even if you are not in the USA, please do reach out to TAPS International which can connect you to someone who knows exactly what you are going through. And, if you have listened in to my podcast regularly, you know that it’s the relationship and not the label that’s important!

Here are some places to visit (you can also find them in the show notes on podcast Episode 25:

TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) if you’ve experienced the military death of a loved one. They also help children and teens with camps and programs.

TAPS International which helps families around the globe.

American Gold Star Mothers for those who have experienced the military death of a son or daughter.

Sons and Daughters in Touch for those missing their fathers killed in the Vietnam War in the USA.

Gold Star Family Registry gives you the ability to search a loved one or friend who was killed in military conflict.

To help bring you to emotional stability, visit Brad Yates’ youtube channel will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. His videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.

Remembering your special loved one and you, too, who sacrificed so much for your nation.
