There is no greater truth about war than the truth that is told to us by our soldiers. I saw The Telling Project in Portland Oregon and was deeply moved. Hearing their stories about life before, during, and after war, live in a theatrical venue was transforming. The soldiers' stories of war are personal and at the same time universal and epic. Every soldier, family and community member becomes a casualty of war. We have yet to understand the profound effects of war on all of us. We should have learned from previous wars that soldiers need to tell their stories, and we need to hear them. Possibly, if we participate in these kind of homecoming rituals, we may think harder before sending more soldiers into battle, and will feel compassion when they return, and we will truly care for them. The Telling Project performs a great humanitarian service to help soldiers come home.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I honestly believe that every member of the audience leaves with a new understanding of who the soldiers are, and that we need to listen to their stories, and work to make homecoming all of our responsibility.
