Poster Girl

Yesterday in my Supervision class for Internship we watched a documentary called "Poster Girl".  I think it is a very powerful documentary and pertains perfectly to today(9/11/2012).  A young lady named Robynn Murray enlisted in the army at the end of September in 2001.  She was only 19 years old, and said she had no idea what she was getting into.  The documentary is semi-graphic with depicting what she saw in other countries such as blood, people dying, etc.  It talks about her struggle with the VA (Veterans Affairs) to get a disability check after coming back to America and suffering from many physical illnesses as well as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).  She gets involved with an organization called "Combat Paper" and creates some art to help her through her healing process.  She claims that art kept her alive.  I think it is a wonderful film and portrays Robynn's message well.
