Thank you for your perspective

Things are clearly not as black and white as an intellectual argument attempts to boil the world down to. For what its worth, there is a difference between killing and murdering. Although you or others you know may have or may not have taken innocent life, I don't think you should bear the emotional weight of murder.

On PTSD, I tend to agree. We talk about stress as a disorder, when clearly it is a natural response to a traumatic event. Humans need to make sense of their experiences, not suppress them with lofty notions and praise.

Your voice is essential and needs to be heard, not just because of your experience but because of the thoughtful reasoning behind your words.

I hope you find peace of mind brother.
