The Courage to Forgive: Jennifer Rawlings

L.A.-based writer, comic, filmmaker, and kick-ass mom Jennifer Rawlings has appeared on numerous tv channels around the world and shared the stage with everyone from Faith Hill to the Vice-President of the United States. After more than 300 military shows in war zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo and Kuwait, Jennifer began her career as a filmmaker. The first movie directed by “Forgotten Voices: Women in Bosnia” has received critical acclaim and been invited to screen at film festivals worldwide. Adding to a long list of publications, including the New York Times, Rawling is currently finishing a new book. In the meanwhile, she’s here with us tonight, and can’t barely hold to come on stage. In this passionate talk, Jennifer shares her life lessons and experiences from doing stand-up for soldiers in war zones and areas of political tension around the globe. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
