Recently Michelle and I were invited to attend a special luncheon and graduation ceremony for the January 2018 class for Southeastern Guide Dogs. We have always had a passion for our four legged friends and jumped at the opportunity to attend. This ceremony gave us a new perspective, not only on the dogs, but on the individuals that are fortunate to receive a guide dog. The dogs become their freedom to have a life that we sometimes take for granted.

People with vision loss are young and old, students and professionals, parents and grandparents, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. Some have been blind all their lives; others lose vision unexpectedly, suddenly, and the losses quickly magnify. Loss of driving, loss of jobs, loss of freedom. Their world can be a very dark place.

Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are active duty and retirees, men and women, young and old, from all walks of life. The unseen scars of military trauma create losses that quickly magnify. Reclusiveness, depression, anxiety, flashbacks, and hypervigilance become daily battles. Their world, too can be very dark.

And then they meet their dogs, extraordinary guide dogs and service dogs that transform their world with stunning skills and boundless affection. Please watch the video of one such dog,"KING" and his journey.

We were so moved by the stories we heard and the people we met during the luncheon that we have decided to raise awareness and money for this inspirational cause. Michelle and I will be attending the Southeastern
Guide Dog "walk-a-thon" on March 24th. Our goal is to raise $5,000. In doing so, we can name one of the future pups. We are asking for your help, any contribution is greatly appreciated and tax deductible! Please help us change the life of someone living in darkness or with PTSD. Every donation counts big or small! We thank you!

Bless You,

Bruce and Michelle Hearon
