WOMEN VETERAN VICTIMS FIND RELIEF THROUGH TM
Nineteen thousand sexual assaults took place in the U.S. military last year, and victims of these deplorable acts often face problems that extend far beyond the initial pain. WATCH THE VIDEO
"Military sexual trauma is one of the most demeaning, defacing things that an individual can endure," says Tara Jones Wise, Executive Director of the National Women Veterans Association of America. "I felt worthless, and after the military I started drinking and staying out all night and gave up on housework and bills. I wanted to die."
In this heart wrenching but ultimately fully redeeming new video, Tara's emotional scars are still strikingly apparent. Thankfully, unlike many other victims, her story has a happy outcome—Tara learned Transcendental Meditation through the David Lynch Foundation and credits it for her complete, immediate turnaround.
"Since I started meditating I feel better, I’m a lot healthier, I have a lot more energy, I’m able to be more focused… and just be happy about living. TM saved my life."
