It is Real, it is Very Real

By Remy Benoit

War wounds, as horrific as they can be, are not always physical. War wounds can be psychological too. And they can be both.

Why can't we get that?

Why can't we as a world "just get over" not seeing that?

Is it just that it is easier to tell those we send to get over it themselves?

Why do we in so many ways desert them?

From Veterans for Common Sense, the Guardian, and Alison Roberts Wounded in Action.
