Brave Heart—Michael J Contos, Vietnam Veteran

“I lied to my platoon to prevent a mutiny from bursting to a head some 40 years ago. Today, I granted myself forgiveness. I cleansed a wound that never seemed to heal until now…”

Don’t miss this moving account of a young lieutenant in Vietnam who courageously put the good others above his own good and who, today, finally found his way to self-forgiveness.  I am honored to have met Michael Contos and to have learned of his great journey of healing.
