Memorial Day 2007

On Friday night I watched Bill Moyers Journal. The show was about author Maxine Hong Kingston and her most recent project called Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace. The show details her experience in helping veterans, and in some cases, families of veterans heal through the process of writing poetry. The show was devastating, completely and utterly emotionally devastating.

Maxine Hong Kingston's kindness and quiet reverence in dealing with veterans is remarkable. Her insight and understanding of the pain that can devour a living being is astounding. The show is entirely amazing.

You can watch the interview by following the link above. Watching it would be a fine way to honor those brave souls who fought, right or wrong, for this country.
