Mixed media in graphite pencil, colored pencil drawing portrait on bond paper of a nurse and wounded United States military Soldier in a hospital in the Middle East.

The nurse holds his hand which is wrapped in bandages, she wears a blue gloved hand, and she looks at his mouth. She is listening to him.

I was inspired to draw this image both by President Obama’s speech in which he stated that he will be bringing home many of our soldiers soon and by my recent conversation with Rick Lawson, the founder of The War Experience Project. Linked Text

You can find out more about this grassroots project (Rick is a veteran who has used his own money to fund this extraordinary project that combines arts, families, veterans plus more).

The War Experience Project art exhibit has been shown around the USA and internationally as well.

I have discovered that not only am I learning more about what is happening in our war but I am also gaining valuable insight to be able to help me have more empathy (I am trying to walk in their shoes).

I am also gaining insight into where I am lacking in important communication skills necessary to assist our soldiers returning from war.

In particular, is the importance to learn how to really listen and to not ask anything more of those who have already done so much for us without truly honoring what they have done for us all first.
