Riding my way back

book cover image: riding my way back

I have a hold on Riding my way back: a story about a vetern, a horse, and hope. I haven't watched this DVD yet but I am planning on doing so in the near future.  I have to build myself up to it so that I don't cry through the whole thing.  Just the standard documentary description that comes along with the title does a good job of choking me up.  You see, I have a soft spot when it comes to the men and women who put their lives on the line for us and for others all around the world.  I also have a soft spot for animals.  Domesticated ones can be our best friends, allies and companions.  Injured and/or traumatized soldiers need and deserve our help.  Our animal companions need and deserve our help.  When you put an injured  and suicidal soldier with a horse as his new best friend that is, for me, a cue that a box of kleenex will be in order to get through the full documentary.  I am looking forward to watching it.  A good cry never hurt anyone especially if it is a happy cry.  Let me know what you think when you see it.
