american widows project

lovers111108i heard about this on NPR and jezebel linked it today as well

the american widows project was started a year ago by 21 year old taryn davis, whose husband was killed in the war last year. in response, she started this site. their mission statement:

The American Widow Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the new generation of those who have lost the heroes of yesterday, today and tomorrow, with an emphasis on healing through sharing stories, tears and laughter………Military Widow to Military Widow.We are currently in production with a documentary covering the lives and hardships of widows from the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars. From the day we met our spouses, to the knock on the door, these stories are a key to healing. Whether it be sharing your journey or listening to someone else, we all have the opportunity to help others in our shoes. After production has wrapped up, the documentary will be distributed to all the widows to come, as well as those who have already started their walk.


its definitely worth your time..
