Blessing (2012) was choreographed and danced by Brittany Delany at the GROUND SERIES Summer Performance 2012. In her piece and with an intention of peace, Brittany used ritual performance to connect and honor the dead lost to the Iraq War.

How can I empathize with people suffering from loss and death in a war zone?
