Did you know that the U.S. dropped at least two million tons of bombs on the small country of Laos between the years of 1964-1973? Over 50 years later, these bombs are still unexploded and remain a legacy from the Vietnam War era. Panelists from various communities affected from this time will share their stories and how PTSD haunts both Americans and Laotians. Trauma is a serious illness that is often times overlooked and needs to be addressed; come learn how communities heal from these wounded experiences.
