The Humans Behind the Headlines

Yesterday, KUOW featured two stunning poems by Seattle-based poet Lena Khalaf Tuffaha. Each, in its own powerful way, carries us past the headlines, beyond the numbers, and reminds us of the very real human beings who are confronted on a daily basis by war and terrorism. I hope you’ll take a few moments to give “Fragment” and “Running Orders” a listen.

Learn more about Lena Khalaf Tuffaha’s work and Broadsided Press.
