. . . War makes it easier to respond to passion. . . .
~ Fred Foote, Director, Warrior Poetry Project
second of a three-part interview with retired Navy Medical Corps physician Fred Foote appeared last Thursday at TweetSpeak Poetry. In this segment of my interview, titled "Healing with Poetry: Interview with Fred Foote", the poet talks about his interest in and use of holistic medicine in the Warrior Poetry Project at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and what was involved in creating the project. Included are excerpts from two of his poems in his poetry collection Medic Against Bomb: A Doctor's Poetry of War.
