From the Author.

“I am your peace. I am your safety. I have become my worst nightmare.”

When citizens regard peace and safety as a right, communities need soldiers, police and corrections officers, paramedics, firefighters, and frontline hospital personnel: key responders. But, the human mind is not always able to cope with the day after day, month after month, year after year, of filling this role.

Special Operations Forces and civic policing brought Jon Archambault to his knees at the wall of trauma. Immersed in protection, consumed daily with running toward danger until his mind and body wouldn’t, he encountered the first responder’s nightmare: Operational Stress Injury, in his thirties no less.

What followed was a dual pathway: therapies and a call to a new duty: write or die, write and make a difference—which often seemed as perilous as any missions in his military and police careers.

Compelled to share so that he can continue to serve country, honour colleagues and, perhaps, save lives—including his own—Jon Archambault curates an ‘on the page’ release of story: an open mic version of his life in a blend of creative acts including briefings, factual narrative, prosaic essay, poetry, a screenplay, and even a playlist—think John McCrae (Flanders Fields) meets Tony Robbins (bold advocate).

The book is a gesture akin to extending the hand that saves a life. In his quest and request for people to understand Operational Stress Injury (OSI) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to grasp the role of first responders who are at risk or have already been diagnosed, Jon gives a boots on the ground account of what life is like, and assigns a role to readers so that they can assist those who put their lives on the line for peace and safety.
