I keep forgetting to post on my training & crisis response page but it has been a very busy time. I am traveling a great deal these days offering seminars for NAMI LEO trainings and quite a few Public health departments who are struggling with burnout in dealing with the long drawn out pandemic. I just returned from Prairie Du Chien, and head to Walworth County on Friday. Next Monday I drive up to Door County to lead a guided debriefing for Door County Public Health. Many more to follow....going to be a busy fall!

The work we all do is stressful. One of the ways I balance the stress scale is by rucking with 15% of my bodyweight in a tactical pack. Running is getting more difficult and rucking is a great workout if you move at a vigorous walking pace. Be sure to recharge yourself as frequently as you recharge your mobile phone! Carpe Diem!

WHEN KNOCKED DOWN
When not grounded here at home during this pandemic, I am often traveling and speaking on the topic of how to be resilient in challenging times, post-traumatic growth, and working to overcome moral injury. I often cite those heroic spirits who have risen up out the ashes of some personal tragedy and by their living have given us a glimpse of the what the human spirit is capable of. That spirit when driven by a strong faith and an unassailable purpose is truly undeniable. It will find a way. And they inspire us. And their silent voices whisper into our hearts to get up when we get knocked down.
During this marathon pandemic battle, I find myself drawing from my pantheon of giants who have risen up out of seemingly impossible circumstances to not only carry on in their lives, but seem to shine all the brighter than they did prior to whatever calamity drove them to their knees. This morning I think of the Louis Zamperini. He is the inspirational subject of the book entitled: “Unbroken”. Zamperini grew up in a hard scrabble existence and had to scrap and scrape his way through his early life. He became a tremendous distance runner in high school and became an Olympian running the 5,000 meters at only 19 years of age. He enrolled as student at the University of Southern California but then World War 2 broke out. He enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps. While stationed in Hawaii he and his crew members were sent out on a search for a lost aircraft. The aircraft he was on developed major mechanical difficulties and crashed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, far from anywhere. 8 of the 11 crew members perished in the crash but Zamperini and 2 other crew members survived, and managed to inflate a life raft. While on the raft, they lived on rain water, raw fish and the occasional bird that would land on their raft. A Japanese bomber strafed the raft, but they were able to patch bullet holes. Later, one of the men on the raft died and was laid to rest in the sea. After 47 days they arrived at Marshal Islands, only to be captured by the Japanese army. Zamperini endured torture in more than one prisoner of war camps. There was one Japanese guards they called the “The Bird” Mutsuhiro Watanabe, who was especially cruel to Zamperini. When the war was over, Zamperini wrote a letter to Watanabe forgiving him. Zamperini went on after the war to become a Christian Evangelist, and died at the age of 97….unbroken.
Throughout all of human history there are countless stories of those who have risen up with tenacity from what some might see as impossible situations. Seek them out, learn from them, then get up. You get knocked down, you get up again, and again, and again.
This contemporary song had me fighting back tears the other day and hasn’t left me. I leave it’s words with you. Easter is almost upon us…and those of us who are of the Christian Faith will proclaim: “He has risen!” and like Him….we too rise.
Andra Day
You're broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can't find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousands times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn't quiet
And it feels like it's getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we'll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
We'll take it to its feet
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up….

GREG’S 7 STEPS FOR COPING WITH THE CURRENT PANDEMIC
Nearly everyone will have stress reactions to the current pandemic, much of those reactions being driven by the unknown. Those reactions could be different for each of us. Stress may affect you cognitively, (how you think), behaviorally, (how we act), emotionally, (how we feel), physically, (how our body reacts to stress), and spiritually, (how we practice our faith, or possibly change it).
In dealing with the stressful situations that I deal with so frequently this is how I mitigate the stress:
1. Take a break. Especially from social medi which is so often riddled with misinformation which only gets magnified when shared. Social media, while it has it’s benefits, so often causes “knee jerk” responses, so easily done from a keyboard. Take a break from the news and seek out stories that inspire you.
2. Meditate, Pray/Worship, or practice deep breathing
3. Talk about it. Find ways during this time of isolation to stay connected in ways you can mutually support each other. Listen well to each other and avoid blame
.
4. Find or involve yourself in a hobby. If you like woodworking, do that. If you like making things that can be helpful. Any creative act can be beneficial.
5. Find a purpose beyond yourself. Helping other people more vulnerable, more severely impacted by this crisis gives meaning in the midst of difficult situations
6. Exercise. I jog and walk alone. Even though you might be used to going to a gym, you can find ways to exercise on your own. Exercise, which is Eustress helps to balance the scale caused by distress. Getting outside with fresh air also provides many benefits.
7. Laugh! Find humor and just laugh.

I am praying that all of you can have a most blessed holiday. May you find peace, hope, joy, and love this season. I know that it is hard, very hard for some of you given the year you may have had. For you I pray for comfort and strength. For those of you depressed, I pray that you find hope, that we who surround you as a great crowd of witnesses, can find the strength to persevere. May all of us find at least some precious moments of Peace....peace within...and peace without.

A big shout out to the Steven's Point, Wisconsin Fire & Rescue department for putting together the two days of training I am offering at Mid-State Technical College. Today it was Peer Support to better equip all first responders to take better care of their own. Tomorrow, I offer Resiience in Challenging Times, (I am guessing it to be about my 53rd presentation of the year so far). If it makes a difference it is all worth it.
