Exploring Diversity Film: “The Wounds We Cannot See” Saturday, Oct. 28, 7:00 pm

The Wounds We Cannot See

The Melrose UU Church, as part of its year-long initiative entitled “Exploring Diversity: On the Path to Understanding”, is excited to be able to offer a viewing of this important film.

The film will be shown at the Melrose UU Church, 70 West Emerson Street, Melrose Ma, on Saturday, October 28th, at 7:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.

“The Wounds We Cannot See” is an award-winning documentary about the life of Nancy Ross, a US Navy Airman from Hingham, Massachusetts. As a rebellious teenager she was committed to McLean Hospital, but later found herself as a high-achieving US Navy Airman, until a traumatic rape leaves her broken with PTSD. The gripping story follows Nancy’s life, loves and struggles with addiction, depression and mental illness before she begins to piece her life back together.

Please be sure to come to the Melrose UU Church and see this film, and bring a friend or two, as we continue on our mission to explore diversity. To learn more about the Melrose UU Church’s year-long Diversity initiative, please visit our web page at:
