The ending to a true hero

 

My name if private Grayson Parker I pledged to serve my country.  But when the war was over they left me to offend for myself without any help. its day one of my return I haven’t had a good night’s sleep since the war started. I got one and my wife krissy and my son dante were there waiting for me. I was as happy as I have ever been to see the faces of the ones I love. We had a nice dinner and spent family time together something we haven’t done since dante was born. He was just born when I got deployed. He’s four now and I wonder if he even knows who I am. I lay in bed with my wife for the first time in what seems like forever. I can’t fall asleep I keep thinking about the men I lost the people I killed I still wonder if it was worth it.

 

Its day 3 of my return from the war and nothing has changed I still wake up in the middle of the night screaming of war. It wakes my wife up and I can tell she worries for me. I talked to a psychiatrist she said it was normal to have flash backs of the war after you get back. I took the family to the movies today it was about a sniper in the war all I could think was this isn’t what it’s like they have no idea how horrible it really is. Its time to go to bed we will see if today is any different than the first to.

 

It’s been 1 weak since my return and nothing has changed. My wife is getting more and more  worried every day I think she is questioning my sanity and I think I am too. I went to see the psychiatrist again and she is still saying the same thing that’s its normal. I suppose all I can do is wait and hope. I was watching tv and seen a add for the new call of duty. I remember when I was playing call of duty that’s what got me in to joining the war. I wish it was like the games but I learned something very fast you best friend doesn’t comeback after they die no matter how much u want them to.

 

It’s been 1 month since I came back and nothing has changed i can feel myself slipping into my on world. I’m getting distant from my family and friends. Ive been seeing the psychiatrist and she said that I need to get some medication to help me with my depression. The government wont even help pay for it. Even after all I don’t for them . im still waking up in the night screaming bloody murder. Its always the same dream my best friend Jake who I joined with. He got shot right in front of me and there was nothing I could do.

 

3 months after I got back ive lost grip of who I am. I don’t talk to my wife anymore or spend anytime with my son. The war has finally caught up with me and I don’t know if I can go on. I think about it allot just ending it but there was always something stopping me something telling me to get fighting. A voice in my head telling me you need to go in your family needs you. I don’t hear that voice anymore.

 

We are gathered hear today to respect the great man who has died today Grayson  Parker. He was a great man a great father and a devoted soldier. The reasons why he ended his life is uknown but we can all assume that it was from lack of work. He is in a better place now but we will all miss him.
