courage and tenacity
Miller. MA, and Kent Campbell, ed.
invited to submit your story! We are compiling a book
of inspirational, short stories called Letters From The Edge: a
celebration of courage and tenacity. It is a dynamic compilation of short
stories about those who have triumphed over traumatic brain injury. We
are honoring survivors of head injury for their strength of will,
for believing in themselves, for overcoming adversity, and standing up
for themselves or others. Letters From The Edge is meant to move
you to laugh to cry, to ponder possibilities, to dream and to make those
dreams a reality.
We are inviting
survivors of brain injury of all ages and backgrounds to submit their stories.
Our goal is to have the book represent a wide range of experience and inspiration.
Surviving the physical challenges of brain injury is the first step of
a lifelong journey of adjustment and accommodation. Re-establishing lives
transformed by brain injury requires foresight, fortitude, and unflagging
courage. Letters From The Edge is a celebration of those journeys.
Charting new territory,
head injury has been characterized as the "Silent Epidemic." It has
earned that distinction in part because survivors tend to withdraw from
society. Letters From The Edge ends the silence and inspires others
to take change their lives.
