Event Description

         This welcome home ceremony brings together veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the local community. It intends to help heal the distance between the warriors and those they protect, and to bridge the gaps between war and peace, trauma and renewal, pain and understanding.

Join author Michael Meade and veterans for an evening of poetry, stories, and cogent commentary on the realities of war and the difficulties in returning from it. Healing only happens when the burdens of war can be shared by the greater community. A public gathering allows citizens to be compassionate witnesses to the stories of war and the need for conscious and genuine acts of welcoming. As one veteran writes in a poem; " Can we create a village as strong as a war?"


Tickets - $12 - Veterans are free. Please contact Mosaic at 206-935-3665 or at info@mosaicvoices.org for Veteran's reservations
