The Telling Project
March 23, 2010
As the spouse of a vet, an interviewee, an audience member, and a writer/performer at the Service Nation event in DC, I am deeply grateful for my involvement with Telling. I think it would not be hyperbole to say that the Telling Project has the capacity to save lives. In the age of the volunteer army and the polarized homefront, Telling provides a venue for veterans to be heard and civilians to be challenged and moved. Perhaps more importantly, it allows veterans and loved ones to navigate the haunted terrain of life in wartime with compassion, grace, and, yes, levity.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
being a part of the Telling community and feeling that charged silence of audience members listening for the first time.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
compassionate, insightful, dedicated, honest, and often hilarious.
