A moving juxtaposition of civic and familial trauma

Hardin’s fragmented vignettes about his time volunteering for the American Red Cross are broken up by pieces about the decline and eventual loss of his mother which perhaps ultimately spurred his interest in volunteering.  It’s a reflective and interesting exploration of trauma and grief on both levels—civic and personal.
