“What are we over here fighting for?” An American soldier asked this question during the Vietnam War. Many other American soldiers and citizens wondered the same thing. The conflict began when the United States sent armed forces to defend South Vietnam against Communist North Vietnam. It was supposed to be a brief military operation, but it ended as a bloody, twelve-year conflict in which thousands of American soldiers were killed. Author Deborah Kent examines this tragic and controversial period in American history from the first Marines arriving at Da Nang to the final airlift out of Saigon.

Deborah Kent is a holistic health and well-being author, so her approach includes body, mind, emotions, and spirit. She has personally experienced that it is possible to improve your life circumstances and have a happier life, regardless of where you are starting from. Deborah experienced many problems, and also much pain and suffering during her life. This included a violent and traumatic childhood, many chronic health problems, a domestic violence marriage to an alcoholic husband, and the loss of her still-born baby boy through a surprise home birth, when she had not even known that she was pregnant. Then whilst she was at home recovering, she was bullied and abused by her next-door neighbour, which forced her to have to move away from her house, and so she lost her home of many years. Then she was sexually molested by her father, which then led to repressed memories of many years of childhood sexual abuse, including "group" sex. Then her family did not support her, so she separated from all of her family. The "Awaken the Flow" business was launched in 2003, followed by the launch of the dot com website, to provide health and well-being services to others. The "Awaken the Flow" name was born following a series of life experiences that included the loss of Deborah's baby boy, and then the recovery and healing journey that followed. Deborah realized, as a part of her own healing journey, that all you need for healing, health and well-being, is already within you, and, when you "awaken that flow" from within, then you can truly have a better life, regardless of what your life experiences have been. That is when Deborah and her partner came up with the name of "Awaken the Flow." From the ashes of death, was born new life. Deborah learnt about holistic health and well-being in order to help herself with her own problems in life. She has shared this knowledge, and helped many others around the world, including clients from her previous international internet business as "Shanti." Today Deborah is a gentle soul, who is a strong, vibrant, smiling and happy person, who is content, and at peace. Her holistic healing work is a catalyst for transformation and awakening. She was compelled to write her books in order to help others.
