Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury After War by Rev. Rita Nakashima Brock and Gabriella Lettini, PhD.
A Veteran's Day post by Gabriella Lettini at Huffington Post looks at the concept of Moral Injury as a wound of war:
War does not end when peace is declared and the troops come home. It continues to affect the bodies, psyches, souls, lands and communities of everyone involved. War's tragic legacy passes on from generation to generation, more dangerously so when it is ignored and left unattended.
