Book Signing at Luke Air Force Exchange August 15, 2015 The book signing was a great success. Thomas presented his book He Was. We met some very interesting people. Veterans are a wealth of information. They share their stories with great passion, love, and understanding. You never realize what the veterans went through until you’re talking to them in person. A few of the older veterans stopped by the table and spoke with Thomas about their time in the military, especially where they were in 1945. Some of those stories make you realize that we are all mortal and we should be thankful for our freedom. They fought those wars so we can read this blog, share our books, and above all, live the freedom of the American Way. Stay tuned for Thomas’ next book signing. Our goal is to go to as many Air Force bases in the country. For more information on Thomas Lowrie and his book He Was, at http://www.thomaslowrie.com/To buy the book from Amazon.

When I read her book “Shelter Me”. I would have never understood what a widow or an abused mother goes through. This book has definetley opened my eyes. I look around and I don’t see any of this. And I realize that it happens in closed doors. The hidden reality of life. Women that try to live their lives and have a hard time doing so, and yet we don’t know so we don’t help. And even if I did want to help. What could I do? I would feel just as helpless as they. Even then, I would help in anyway I could. By lending a helpful hand at the gas station, or listening. I don’t know.Judy offers us a way to help those unfortunate souls with “Shelter Me.” By educating us in the hidden lives of these brave and wonderful women. Judy has made a difference in my life. I understand more.Go to her website and see for yourself. For more information on Judy Sine Logan and her book Shelter Me by Judy Logan go to her website www.judyshinelogan.com Andres Fragoso, Jr.

Sometimes women were hospitalized on the inpatient unit because returning home was unsafe and not an option or because there was no room at one of the handful of shelters back then. Likewise, abused and violated children were treated in the outpatient practices and the inpatient locked children’s unit when their behavior posed threats to themselves and others. The unit locks were meant to keep the children in, but often to keep out their abusers. Though the work was fulfilling, it was also terrifying, and my heart ached for these hurting women and children. At the end of the day, the…
