Political Perspectives on 07/29/11
Dan Shea of Veterans for Peace talks about "The Tenacity of Hope," a Veterans Art Exhibit at the Littman and White Galleries at Portland State University, Smith Memorial Student Union. Dan Shea, a Vietnam veteran, curated the exhibit, which is about the resilience of veterans to survive using art as a path to healing, the resistance of veterans to be silent, to ignore history and a warning to the present that our future will require not a few warriors but all of us to be committed to nonviolence, itself a nonviolent revolution, thus, they dare to hope their work is making a difference.
