The essay I wrote after returning from Standing Rock in December has just been published in O-Dark-Thirty, the literary journal of the Veterans Writing Project. You can read it here: https://o-dark-thirty.org/2017/08/01/we-are-not-at-war/
New video! “Land Of The Free”
A brand new patriotic music video for America’s most explosive holiday, Independence Day, in honor of those for whom this has never been the “Land of the Free.” (Note: it includes content relating to police brutality that some may find triggering.)
Have a safe 4th of July! And remember, before setting off fireworks, please consider the people in your neighborhood who may have been previously exploded in a war or elsewhere.
Videography & editing by Bryan Edward with concept/production by Kristina Rusch, who also plays a mean assailant.
