Front Cover
Petra Books, Aug 1, 2016 - Psychology - 234 pages

A journal in recognition of the passengers whose lives were changed forever in a tragic bus-train collision and in memory of those who died. 

“David Gibson’s reality was altered in a moment on September 18, 2013. His eloquent and poignant requiem chronicles his efforts to re-orient himself to a world whose boundaries and reference points abruptly disappeared…he chronicles his experiences in a way that helps us understand the hidden struggle of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD.” — Dr. Larry Cebulski, clinical psychologist.
