COPERA’S Corner, has an informative show that starts with their new segment “Copera’s Twist.” In this episode they focus on uncovering the pain we face in our country beginning with last week’s Democratic debate. Their discussion is followed by silent struggles and the cost for victory.

By Hallie Neill

America is hurting. America is divided. The first Democratic debate did nothing to calm the fears or ease that pain.

When Bernie Sanders said America is tired of hearing about “email-gate” he forgot to mention that the FBI is pursuing an active investigation about those pesky little emails.

We watched Hillary rant that the economy hasn’t been this bad since the 1920’s but encouraged us that it’s always better with a Democratic president. News flash: We have a Democratic president. Hillary’s 5-point plan is more free stuff for all, including college. Her recurring theme? “I’ll get the rich to pay for it.”

Hillary’s response to Anderson Cooper’s comment that Americans died in Benghazi was, “Yes, I’ll get back to that.” She never did. Right. “What difference does it make?”

By Rebecca L. Mahan

There are many things in America that present challenges in our lives, yet often times we struggle in silence. There are issues only women face, issues specific to first responders, and then there are those that come at a cost to achieve success.

Up first in the show, calling in from Iceland, Pauline McCarthy, Menopause Expert, gets real about the hush-hush topic of menopause and tells it like it is. Part of the normal cycle in a woman’s life that many are not aware of is just how early symptoms of “the change” can take place. One of the most commonly known symptoms is hot flashes. Other systoms, such as memory loss can also be attributed this change. Her focus is to put this topic on the table so women can begin to understand what is happening within their bodies as they go through the aging process.

Our next guest, La Mesa Police Captain (Ret.) and Author of “”Bulletproof Spirit”: The Essential Resource for all First Responders”, Dan Willis is on a mission to help first responders, such as police officers, fire fighters, and others, tackle the issues unique to those who serve in this field. He provides in-depth insight on the challenges first reponders face on a daily basis. Discussing the various types incidents of trauma first responders face over prolonged periods of time, Dan shares how this can result in poor health and wellness issues if not addressed. He also provides alarming details of how those who have suffered in silence have dealt with these issues. His goal is to provide the tools and resources needed to prevent first reponders from having to suffer in silence and assist those who are.

While there is always a cost versus benefit to the choices we make, our last guest, Speaker and Author of “Paying Victory’s Price”, Roger Lambert, paints a portrait of the costs of success. Despite the personal challenge of having been legally blind for over 40 years, he shares what personal victory is all about. Roger knows what the cost to benefit ratio of victory is from his own experience as a 27 year veteran basketball coach and inspires the listener to shoot for success.

This particular show not only reveals hidden pain in America, but inspires the listeners to move beyond it.
