"If I had my arm chopped off, they’d would say, ‘Oh yeah, he’s hurt.’ But instead they’re like, ‘We can sweep [this] under the rug and not necessarily have to pay because … it’s not physically seen.’ That’s the problem with PTSD … people don’t see it."
Just wanted to say that all of the various online NewsHour platforms are terrific. I listen to the podcast daily, follow on twitter and here. Terrific way to keep up with the world. Thanks for doing what you do!
Thanks so much for your support, James! We really appreciate it.
Hello. I'm just dropping by to say that the NewsHour was an incredibly important part of my childhood and upbringing. I used to watch it every night with my mom and it introduced me to ideas and concepts that have been crucial in my development as a person. NewsHour instilled in me the value of critical thinking and the need for balanced, measured information on domestic and international events. Now I'm a college freshman studying Political Science and Global Studies. Thanks for inspiring me.
