Of Men and War, a movie that will touch your heart

What's on my mind? I haven't been able to forget the powerful movie I saw last night at the Plaza Theater in Midtown: OF MEN AND WAR. It was written and directed by Laurent Becue Renard and Atlanta's own Izzidore Bethel. 

What a film -- more than a documentary -- intimate conversations with men who had been through the Iraq war and were still suffering serious PTSD. There were so many situations they encountered in battle that wouldn't leave them in peace after they returned home. 

Caring, thoughtful therapists have helped them cope so they could return to their homes and their families without being a danger to themselves or others. EVERYONE should see this.
