The layover Wednesday was, shall we say, interesting😬.
He was a young fatigues dressed soldier🇺🇸 returning to base after leave carrying his pack.
Agitated. Verbose. Wide eyes a bit vacant. If you’ve seen past news stories, you’d recognize the look. #strangerdanger
Random conversation. Real random.😱
Estranged from his wife and child. Heading “home” , yet homeless and restrained from seeing either because of an altercation weeks prior.
Did I mention he discussed his recent release from a psych hospital?😳
Generally, I am not forward (and never pushy ) about sharing oils, but I know what works, and frankly, I was inches from having a #seesomethingsaysomething conversation with an airline employee. …. so I asked him to open his hand, receive what I had to offer, and breathe slowly and deeply. #hedid
I rather feel like I can not do this situation or conversation justice, and we’ll never know what could have happened if I hadn’t had these two travel companions with me. Let’s just say my utmost respect for Stress Away and Peace & Calming has…. yet again…. been elevated.
We made it safely. Thank God.
