Voices of Veterans: A Welcome Home Ceremony

Voices of Veterans: A Welcome Home Ceremony
For veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other wars
Thursday, November 10th, 2011 ~ 7 PM
First Unitarian Universalist Church
1187 Franklin Street at Geary, San Francisco, CA

This Welcome Home Ceremony brings together veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, veterans of other wars with 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. Such a welcoming involves a courageous community conversation that moves beyond politics and goes deeper than the rhetoric of war. It begins with tragedy and loss—the aftermath of any war—and requires the language of poetry and story, as well as the dignity of ceremony.
