After Moral Injury: Backing Through A Side Door Into Consciousness

by | May 27, 2019

On Memorial Day Bill R. Edmonds on war and moral injury :

“Some do not get to come home. For those who do, however, some bring their wars home, within them. Too often, they go on to suffer alone, and in silence.

Too often, their traumas last a lifetime.

Healing, however, is both learned and possible. This issue is personal, as war should be for everyone.”

War changes you. Changes you.

Strips you, strips you of all your beliefs,

your religion, takes your dignity away,

you become an animal

– Anonymous Vietnam Veteran
