I chose to become a member of Mankind Project USA because of the impact it has had on both my brother and my dad. My brother was the first to get involved. I noticed after his warrior weekend that his communication style changed. He had returned with an intuitive way of expressing himself by standing up for his thoughts and feelings while also sensing and responding to my reactions in a mindful way. A few years later, my dad decided to participate in the warrior weekend as well. The first word that comes to mind to describe him when he returned is “excited.” The way he spoke to me on the phone made me tear up because I could feel the genuine excitement and relief in his voice from having gone through this life changing experience. My brother … asked me if I would be willing to become a member and donate to the program. It made me feel like I could be part of the program that has helped both my brother and my dad. It made me feel included.
