A Conversation about War: Producer Susan Hackley travels to Indiana to lead an event with Silouan Green, veteran and author
A Conversation about War
Join us for a community gathering to talk about war. This event will be led by Silouan Green, veteran and author, and Susan Hackley, documentary film producer, and it is open to everyone free of charge. We invite veterans, soldiers, liberals, conservatives, independents, pacifists, parents and siblings – and anyone else with something to say about war.
When a nation goes to war, a nation should have a conversation on why we fight, how we fight, and what we do when the fighting stops and our troops come home. Never before have so few served relative to the general population, and to many Americans the wars are all but invisible.
This Conversation about War is our first step in making sure that all Americans can express their thoughts about war and ask questions in an environment of respect and curiosity. This is for everyone. We hope you will come.

Associate Producer and Advisory Board Member Martha Jackson speaks at the Fletcher School about "Veteran Kids"
Project New Hope transforms the lives of veterans through free retreats for veterans and their families – a "healthy environment to learn from others and expand their experiences to develop methods to move beyond negative impacts that may have resulted from deployments or service in America's Armed Forces."
"A Child's Guide to War" project founder Susan Hackley is shown here at a recent retreat in Groton, MA, with Silouan Green, Marine veteran and motivational speaker and writer. Silouan and Susan are planning an event in Indiana - "A Conversation about War" that will be open to the public and that will welcome everyone!
A Child's Guide to War is proud to be featured as the lead story in "The Peacebuilding Post," which is published by the Alliance for Peacebuilding. We hope that by spreading awareness in such formats we can increase our ability to bridge the civilian-military divide. Read the article that has been published on the link below:
