I feel very honored to have been a part of the Vet Art Project. I loved collaborating with other artists on this profound and positive project. The arts in all their forms: visual, literary, theatrical, and musical all came together on one amazing night at the Chicago Cultural Center. To be in the presence of so much positive energy was a powerful experience that I will never forget. So much was achieved by a committed group of artists who donted their time and talents to help our Veterans heal and deal with the wounds they carry from their war experience. The caring and compassion expressed by the artists for the Veterans was genuine and heartfelt. The arts heal from the inside out, by reaching our deepest and most complex sources of being. I plan to continue working with the Vet Art Project and other veteans projects that integrate art into the healing and tratment of vets and their families.
Thank you Lisa and Jessa for everything you have done to help our wounded warriors.
