Our logo shows military members emerging from the “Rorschach Test.” The Rorschach inkblot test, the Rorschach technique, or simply “the inkblot test” has been employed to detect underlying thought disorder, especially in cases where patients are reluctant to describe their thinking processes openly. The test is named after its creator, Swiss physiologist Hermann Rorschach. We want to emphasize to our returning military heroes with Traumatic Brain Injury that they are “out of their brains, not out of their minds.”
The most common inkblot is the butterfly, pictured in our logo. This signifies the many changes that occur when a person goes to war, and then returns. No other living creature changes more than the butterfly. No other creature is more beautiful nor signifies freedom more than the butterfly. We salute our heroes from Iraq and Afghanistan who survived the war to return to us, and we are here to assist with rehab and reintegration, helping them to stay firmly grounded while finding their “wings.” Resurrecting Lives Foundation salutes graphic designer, Emmy Hoy Mitchell for her creativity in developing our logo. We appreciate her ongoing commitment in time, energy and creativity to our heroes, and our foundation.
