Mothers Speak About War And Terror (tags)
Humankind's uncanny ability to make major advances in one civilization while simultaneously razing others beyond recognition is a strange facet of our nature. Yet most Americans are far removed from the constant dangers and terrors of living under a war. Few of us who did not serve in Vietnam or Iraq, for instance, have a clear understanding of the devastation wrought on those countries. The gap between our reality and theirs served as the driving force behind American author Susan Galleymore's venture into the war-torn countries of the Middle East. Her new book, "Long Time Passing: Mothers Speak About War & Terror," tells the stories of the repercussions of war on the mothers, families, communities, and cultures of Iraq, Israel, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan, and the United States.

CA Military Mom's New Book About War and Mothers Launches (tags)
Susan Galleymore made international headlines by taking the extraordinary and even dangerous step of traveling to Iraq in 2004 to visit her soldier son stationed on a military base in the so-called Sunni Triangle, north of Baghdad. What she found in Iraq – the horrors of war which was at once heartbreaking and compelling - challenged her to continue her journey interviewing mothers in war zones including Iraq, Israel and the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan and the US. These powerful first-person stories offer dramatic insight into the impact of war on mothers, families, communities, in those countries. On Sunday afternoon, May 3rd, local military moms, musicians, poets, and artists will celebrate the publication of Susan Galleymore’s new book Long Time Passing: Mothers Speak About War and Terror by Pluto Press / Palgrave MacmIllian.
