Jeremy Courtney puts a human face on war as he skillfully narrates his own work about the effects of chemical warfare on Iraqi children. His clear and steady voice adds authenticity to his family's decision to move to Iraq to make a difference, to somehow counteract the violence of war with acts of love. With accomplished pacing, he recounts their adjustments and difficulties living in a foreign culture with their young children. His graphic descriptions of innocent youngsters suffering the effects of chemical warfare are emotionally charged and bring a reality of war few in America encounter. With crisp diction, he explains how homemade Iraqi shoes were sold to fund training for doctors and nurses and for children's life-saving heart surgeries, an effort that gave birth to the Preemptive Love Coalition.
