THE STORY:

Hello, my name is Karl Earnest Creech, and I am a long time sufferer of PTSD.  This fall, I'm beginning a 10,000 mile walk to raise awareness of PTSD, document how others have healed and continue to cope with PTSD, and I'm going to personally see to the healing of my own PTSD.  I'm also going to wear the Team RWB eagle on my chest, and draw attention to them, and other charity organizations like them.  This fundraiser is for the gear I need to actually complete my walk. On the walk, I will be raising money through pledges and one time donations, and when I am finished, I am going to start a charity called The Ronin Ambassadors. This charity will help others do the same thing I'm doing, so that they can heal as well. PTSD is a monster. Its always waiting for when you are most comfortable and happy, to completely ruin that happiness. Personally, I cannot maintain relationships, I can't work, and I can't enjoy the things I love. Anxiety attacks, mental breakdowns, fits of anger, depression, confusion, and defensiveness toward anyone who wants to help... these are just some of the problems I face daily. However, I am a Marine, and I can do something about this. I don't have to live in oppression from myself. Many have it way worse than me, and they have found healing through physical exercise, meditation, and other techniques that are very cheap, organic, and self-motivated. I am going to meet some of these people, learn how they healed, let myself heal, and document the whole thing so that everyone can watch on youtube. Then, I'm going to do whatever is in my power to startup a charity organization that helps others do the same, so that they can get out in the country, walk it out, meet other kinds of people, and go back to their lives just a little more capable of maintaining happiness.
