First Responders, PTSD and Hope through the 10-42 Project

Over the years we've had the opportunity to interview thousands of guests. All have a story to tell and they are all important.  This is one of the great stories. Here you will meet Daniel and Christine Defenbaugh the creators of the 10-42 Project a non-profit that travels the U.S. assisting first responders as they deal with the trauma that is so much a part of their day. This story starts out as Daniel talks about taking his own life and where that journey led him. This is truly a remarkable conversation and you can help spread the word. By the way 10-42 is police jargon for "end of the tour". The need is great and it's brought home in this episode.
