The view was expansive. The calm of the site was not what I expected. I was torn whether to break the sanctity of the place and document my visit with a photograph. There is peace at this place of horrific loss of life. This place, Pearl Harbor, is a time capsule and monument to tragedy, heroism, and bravery.
The serenity of the harbor and the still glass-topped water are so deceptive as they hide the brutality that took place here.
There is still so much mystery that comes with the human body. The mind-body connection is interwoven and not fully understood. It makes sense that what we eat, drink, think, hear, feel, and say has consequences that most probably play a role in our overall health. Maybe, just maybe, through the benefits of modern science and complementary therapies, each of us may find our unique regimen.
This is from my book:
Positive thinking and hope can help people get through the most traumatic of events. Feats of superhuman strength in times of crisis, heroism under severe pressure, survival under extreme conditions, and the ability to push the body beyond its breaking point are just some of the unexplained medical phenomenon that science can’t fully dissect. Why shouldn’t everyone be capable of such feats?
