Hear Ye, Hear Ye....
Its been 12 or so years now that I entered into the FB world and my life has been a whirlwind of good things that have happened. In 2010, I began to delve into music again, and the MUSIC has actually consumed me and my life. Then there is the nonprofit and volunteer work that I have done, and this is not a plea for money.
So my Facebook page from this day forward is a little about Michael Williams and actually devoted to the Music, Music Therapy and PTSD and sharing information that maybe helpful to Veterans here in the U.S. and everywhere.. Here is a little information about 'LIFEOSOPHI".
LIFEOSOPHI tm (Life-oso-phi) is a nonprofit, created a few years ago with the sole intent of helping Veterans, those living in poverty and the Homeless. To that end, I have been fighting and will be continuing the fight to spread the word.
After working full time as a paid employee and volunteer with local nonprofits at a homeless shelter and food bank, I have changed focus and my efforts have turned into mainly to inform people about Music and Music Therapy and how it is helping Veterans. But also to help Vets pro bone to navigate the complex and daunting VA claims system and I will be focusing my efforts to continue doing exactly that!
Like thousands of other Veterans I have PTSD and it has been Lifelong PTSD acquired during Naval Service in Ireland. I returned home in 1977 a completely different person than when I left. The intrusive thoughts, flashbacks and memories are daily reminders and nightly visitors in my dreams, which have never left me.
I created the following video as part of my Masters studies in 2014 and wrote, played and recorded the music score "SOLACE" earlier in 2012. Here is the video production of what I experienced in part during the height of the murders, bombings and terrorism of the mid seventies in Londonderry or (DERRY) Northern Ireland.
My therapy is not provided by the VA, instead they feel a drug or prescription for some psychotropic drug is the answer to everything, but pain. Now the VA Mandates require the physicians not to treat pain. Mainly due to the people that abuse and commit suicide. Thousands of Veterans are now living without life improving pain medications, as part of their VA Care.
Going forward, I am devoting all of my time. efforts and committing this Facebook Page to share with the public exactly what Veterans are faced with in dealing with the VA. Again, going forward, this page is committed to the cause and to inform the public what really goes on with the VA.
Michael Williams is only the person and voice and not here to share Granny's old Apple pie recipe, lol.
Please share this new page with your friends and ask them to friend this page and to spread the word and experiences of Veterans who are now faced with fighting there own government for the VA benefits. I ask not for a single penny and nothing but a few keystrokes to ask you to share this page and for your friends and their friends to friend this page and do the same They will not be asked anything, or messaged at all or be contacted in any manner.
Come on FB and friends, Please help a lonely old dying Veteran in a truly worthy cause.
