There are all kinds of activism in times of war. Some work for peace. Others offer help for the wounded. Others still devote themselves to nurturing recovery in war’s aftermath. A very special kind of activism has been evident in suffering, battle-scarred Syria. And on this week’s show, Welton will explore the work of the Preemptive Love Coalition, an organization doing just that, led by activist Diana Oestreich. Committed to staring pain in the face and choosing to love anyway, Diana is a former Army combat medic who served in the Iraq War and a sexual assault nurse examiner.
