Bon Jovi released song "Unbroken" to honor the veterans with PTSD

111

Grammy Award-winning rocker Jon Bon Jovi has written a sing honoring veterans titled “Unbroken” especially for the documentary, To Be of Service, dedicated to the veterans living with PTSD and their service animals. Moreover, the lyrical character of the song is a veteran and the song is written through his. eyes

Bon Jovi says:

“I was asked to write this song, and it was going to be a difficult task, because I haven’t served in the military, because the goal is honesty. You have to be honest if you’re going to take on this task, and be truthful in its delivery, so that the men and women who did serve will feel pride when they hear the song.”

For the next twelve months, all of the song’s proceeds will go to the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation — a non-profit organization that provides highly trained service dogs for veterans, at no cost to them.

“Where’s my brothers? Where’s my country? Where’s my ‘how things used to be’?” the song lyrics read. “God of mercy, God of light, save your children from this life. Hear these words, this humble plea, for I have seen the suffering, and with this prayer I’m hoping, that we can be unbroken.”

“My service dog’s done more for me, than the medication would. There ain’t no angel that’s coming to save me, but even if they could,” the lyrics continue. “Today twenty-two will die from suicide, just like yesterday, they’re gone. I live my life for each tomorrow, so their memories will live on.”

Bon Jovi added that he was “trying to find hope at the end of the journey” in his song, and that one realization which stood out to him was that each veteran said that they would “do it all again.”

“To think that each of these men and women said the one thing is that ‘I would do it all again’ — when you’re making a record, usually you end it with the chorus,” said Bon Jovi. “In this case, it was such a powerful line, that while we were recording it, we said, no, this is the end of the song. The journey ends here, with the positivity.”
