“Sharing our stories can also be a means of healing. Grief and loss may isolate us, and anger may alienate us. Shared with others, these emotions can be powerfully uniting, as we see that we are not alone, and realize that others weep with us.”

AUTHOR OF THE WEEK

 

VERA BRITTAIN

“Politics is the executive expression of human immaturity.”

 

Her best-selling 1933 memoir, Testament of Youth, about WWI became a film.

 

Vera Brittain (1893-1970) documented her experiences as a nurse, in her autobiographical account “Testament of Youth.” She describes how the young nurses worked long hours, in poor conditions. Despite the privations, Vera recounts how she engaged in her duties with great enthusiasm.
