1. In the space below explain why you picked the article you selected for this assignment from the classroom Resources folder. Include a description of what about the focus of the article you chose captured your interest and why.
I picked the article “Terrorism, Post-Traumatic Stress, Coping Strategies, and Spiritual Outcomes, because I am a Soldier myself, and even though I have not been affected by PTSD, I know other Soldiers who have. I want to really understand the details of PTSD and how it affects the human body. I feel like if I completely understand then I will know how to react and respond to a Soldier who is going through PTSD. Maybe even I can help that Soldier cope and deal with it so they can live life easier and more peaceful in a way.
We learn about terrorism every day, but this article really goes into depth about 9\11. I feel like we learn something new every day about the 9/11 attack and I want to know as much as I can myself so I can understand why it happened and what people to this day are still going through from being affected by that day. Of course people are still affected by the event that took place, but some people grieve and cope faster than others then there are the people who are affected so badly still to this day. I know as well that with a huge tragedy like 9/11, it can bring on PTSD and affect that person’s everyday life.
When I saw the title of the articles stating “Coping Strategies”, I was kind of confused. My way of thinking was how can you have a coping strategy? People just have their own way of grieving and coping, you can’t really tell them how to get over it or go through it. So, I am very interested to see what the article has to say about this and maybe I can learn and even use some of the strategies myself to help me with what I go through and could possibly even help other people as well....
