A book of essays by award-winning author and journalist David W. Berner is the next best thing to storytelling around a bonfire. In There's a Hamster in the Dashboard, Berner shares stories of "a life in pets" - from a collie that herds Berner home when the author goes "streaking" through the neighborhood as a two-year-old, to a father crying in front of his son for the only time in his life while burying the family dog on the Fourth of July.
This documentary focuses on the lasting impact of the Vietnam War era POW-MIA bracelets through the story of one soldier: Major Stanley Horne. In 1968 this fighter bomber was shot down over North Vietnam, and his name was then engraved, like so many others classified as POW or MIA, on metal bracelets distributed to millions. Bracelets of Grace is the story of how America struggled with the war and tried to heal from the scars it left behind.
