Erika Land Is Battling

erika-wr.jpg

Erika Land is a spoken-word poet and author, but before that she was an Iraq War Veteran. Like many who have experienced war, the trauma led to a host of problems. In this powerful story, she tells us how her job helping and not helping those near death haunted her, and made her question her values and her personality. 

The following track was recorded at the September 6, 2016 Worth Repeating with the theme "Fight or Flight." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
