I think this is really important to remember. EVERYONE needs to know that they have these options, but I can also understand how someone might prefer to not press charges or even go to the hospital because they just want to forget it ever happened. What’s important is that someone understands that they don’t NEED to go to the hospital or they don’t NEED to go to the police or they don’t NEED to just go home.
In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’s advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
Find a veteran and listen to his or her story
wtf, maybe sentence him to receive consistent psychiatric treatment??
On December 7, 2013, I will be having my first gallery opening and solo show for my project, Masks of Humanity. VIP ticket sales and sales of the limited edition prints will go to benefit the WWF and IAVA ( Wounded Warrior Project and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.)
You can purchase your tickets at the link below, VIP are $25 each, General admission are free. Vip tickets will grant you 2 hours of access to speak with the artist about his project in a more intimate setting.
My mask series has been completed, my book has been finalized and uploaded and a few copies ordered. So… here’s the link to go and preview the book and buy a copy if you so desire:
