Julia Maki’s Memoir – A Review Released By Moms & Guns
When you reach around page 100, though, the seriousness of her SERE Navy training (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape) kicks in with realities that, even though we may never face to this extreme, inspire a thought provoking question, “what would I do if I faced this or that….?”
Asking the hard questions is what we want every women reading this national blog to do for themselves to discover the successes that lie beneath the surface of their own possible fearful encounters.
What would I do if met with a petty thief trying to grab my purse strap off my shoulder? What would I do if a stranger has entered my house and is walking out the door with my child grasped under his arms – screaming back at you to save them? What would I do if encountered a serial rapist stalking me to and from work? You can continue with your own fearful thought processes.
It’s not wrong to have fearful thoughts but it is definitely a tragedy to have them and do nothing about them.
Reading Julia’s Navy memoir reveals just how far a woman can go into the crevices of thoughtful fear. You’ll be encouraged but you’ll also be challenged.
