This was a very relevant and courageous sharing from two people who found their courage to challenging their own issues and paradigms. From such stories we can all look at our own paradigms (and the systems we belong to) in new and different ways. As a professional counselor I found this interview to be very insightful and helpful in better understanding a more personal view of PTSD. Thank you.
