This podcast series reflects how war impacts all of us by listening to the different perspectives of those that have lived it, understanding how the media shapes our views of war, understanding our own feelings, and learning life skills for managing stress, fear, and anxiety. Our goal is to educate, remind you that you aren’t alone, and give you tools to navigate living and watching war.

In an interview discussion with Harley, Barbara shares her experiences living with a US Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam and his death by suicide in 2020 after a second cancer diagnosis.
