LDRSHIP in an Army of O.N.E. , Essay by CPL Charles D. Wells

LDRSHIP in an Army of O.N.E.


  *FM-1: The Army*


Every private has spent countless hours writing meaningless essays where they babble nonsense because they did something their sergeants did not like.  This is not one of those essays.  I am going to try to make an argument.  I will first present you with a statement, and when you arbitrarily decide that statement is wrong, I will do…

No family al all. My mom died December 28th, 2010. I can not cope with the feeling of hate I have for myself. I feel completely empty and dead inside. She never deserved me for a daughter. I didn't have no thanksgiving supper yesterday.

1year 1month and 7days

okay.. it's been awhile since I've been on here.  I still can't believe it's already been a year and 37 days.. I feel like all I'm doing is watching life .. I do what everyone expects but thats not really living.  I can hear my dad asking me " what do you want mama ?"  and telling me not to worry about anyone else.  Baseball season is over... didn't really watch a lot of games during the season ( I had a hard time ) Football season is here... or as my daddy would say COWBOY…

I miss him so much and wished we…

Tears in the Dark, Little Sisters, and a Broken Promise

To write about my Tim as if he were a paragon, I do not wish to convey those are my thoughts.  He was a simple, everyday teenager who came into the world kicking and screaming as most children do when born.  Still he was my son.  I overlook many imperfections as most fathers do when it comes to their children.  He had his moods, his quarks, his fallacies; but despite all these characteristics that make him human – he was of course my son.  As any father and son, we had our arguments,…

Remembering a sister's courage during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This morning I read something that made me cry. While I can be an emotional person, it's not often that I'm moved to tears.


Today, one of our Legacy.com team members posted on our Legacy.com company blog a reflection on Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what it means to her. Sue lost her sister to breast cancer a few years ago and in the post she pays tribute to her sister's…

Saying Good-Bye to a Hero

I want to make a first short blog here, to get things started a little, and to see how they turn out.


This first post is meant in fact only to say that yesterday, I had to write an article on my regular blog, which is called "For now ..." - and I want to share the link here, so that maybe some of you, who are interested, may pay a visit over there and have a read.


The title that I chose for this…

One of the shinning stars of my night sky.

  This is Leah my second child of three.  She would have been seventeen on May 22, 2011 but her life ended to early due to mental illness.  My other two children Michael and Elena have been wonderful they have supported me when I really needed it.  My wife Carol has been the foundation and backbone of our family since losing Leah.  I on the other hand have been pretty much a basket case. Suffering from PTSD from finding Leah and the immense guilt of feeling responsible for loosing her, a…

One more day

My mother and best friend pasted away Sept 25 and I have been able to have a single second where I have not been thinking of her.  She was sick for a very long time.  She was only 66.  I was the primary care giver for my grandfather until he passed two year ago at 85 because my mom was not able to care for him.  I did really well dealing with his passing and thought I was prepared for moms.  I was so wrong.  My sister, brother and I were caring for her at home with the wonderful care of…

Great Blog Post!

Hi Theresa,

I just read your post regarding the S O S Convention. You are spot on with everything you said.

I have a couple of suggestions.

If a Suicide survivor doesn't have a pet, getting one that provides love and companionship really helps

It requires commitment, time and energy but, as you said, sometimes you just have to "put one foot iN front of the other" it's a way of putting more attention out rather than focusing inward. Plus there is the reward… Continue

Sarah's headstone

Just to let you guys know, I went out to the cemetery this evening and found that Sarah's headstone is there now. That hit me like a ton of bricks. The expression "set in stone" has taken on new meaning for us now.

Holidays are coming soon

It is getting more difficult as the Holidays are approaching. Rex Allen Days in Willcox was really difficult. When the annual event is over, you know that the Holidays are coming soon.  I am reacting with panic attacks and random bouts of crying.  Halloween at the end of the month.  It is so unbelievable that it  was one year ago and you dressed as Alice in Wonderland.  Everyone who saw you told me that you were the perfect…
