Yesterday was a day of contact with vets and a reminder of the meaning of what we do at Ashlar: giving hope and experience in resolving the all too often debilitating symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress. It is such an honor to be a "player" in supporting people to re-inhabit their lives. Hurricane Sandy was such a metaphor illuminating the devastation and destruction of home and community and a very literal vision of the work that lies ahead-- both with the metaphor and the reality. Making art, making peace. Rebuilding devastated lives.
