“The Journey Home from War”
Jamil Zainaldin, president of the Georgia Humanities Council and son of a career military officer, wrote an engaging article about our Talking Service programs in 4 northern Georgia communities for Atlanta’s Saporta Report. “War literature and other veterans to talk about it with can be good medicine,” says Professor Kristin Kelly of the University of North Georgia, one of the facilitators of the group discussions. “Reading literature with fellow warriors staves off the torture of dealing with trauma alone,” Kelly contends. “Literature can mitigate the pain of war, and witness is powerful medicine.” We appreciate the council’s support of Talking Service, and are especially grateful to Jamil for giving the program such exposure!
