The event, co-hosted by film producer Susan Hackley, and Silouan Green, author and veteran, who works with veterans with PTSD, had some lively discussions with a broad range of community members with something to say about war and its impact.
Veterans of Vietnam, World War II and the Iraq War had a lot to say about the need for deeper conversations about war. The message overwhelmingly was that when we send our sons and daughters off to fight a war, we should know exactly what we are asking them to do. It can be pretty ugly, and we shouldn’t sanitize war to make ourselves feel better.
Stay tuned for more community events like this one and make your voice heard!
