On Monday we had the privilege of partnering with Continue Mission to serve 44 military veterans and their families. Together we hosted an evening of activities, exhibit exploration and a presentation from a remarkable speaker, @stacy.bare . Bare served tours in Iraq, Bosnia, and civilian EOD work in Angola and Abkhazia. Like many veterans he struggled with PTSD upon his return home however thanks to friend who invited him rock climbing, Bare was able to begin overcoming his trauma.

“The outdoors can have a dramatic healing impact but more than anything it's a catalyst for change....because of these activities I’ve been able to build up a number of other community supports around them so that I can continue moving forward.” Bare said in his presentation that night. He was inspired by the experience to make the outdoors a true space to heal for all veterans and it was his motivation for founding Adventure Not War.

We were honored to host men and women who served our country and their families. Thank you to Continue Mission for helping us welcome the community for this special program. And thank you to Stacy Bare for engaging us in authentic dialogue about healing.

Yesterday we had the great honor of meeting the distinguished conductor and pianist Glenn Langdon. He played this fantastic tune and more for us on our @mundiproject piano! Langdon also spoke to our team about his hand injury and a corrective surgery that disabled his conducting and playing. He shared his efforts to regain his identity and the abilities that gave him the greatest joy in life. Thanks for sharing that joy with us, Glenn!
