Heartbreaking! Recently National Geographic created a piece on soldiers who have sustained brain trauma in battle caused by blasts and how it affected their life. Many soldiers are still struggling to come to terms with what they've seen and experienced. Luckily, some of them found that using art therapy and creating masks help them to express and articulate how they feel on the inside. One soldier said: "I think this is what started me kind of opening up and talking about stuff and actually trying to get better."
Each mask represents their pain, struggle and fear. You can read and listen to each individual story here. Totally and utterly heart-rending!
P.S: Soldier's story.
P.P.S: Stay tuned for a sassy GIVEAWAY!
