This Bridge was inspired by an email that a solider sent to me about his difficulties with post traumatic stress and resuming his normal life after returning from Iraq. He asked if I had thought about a writing a song that pertained to the war. Instead of focusing on what we all know about how terrible war can be, I focused on the story that most people don’t think about, and that is what happens after a solider returns home and the difficulties the families also go through.
I’m so glad you were able to relate to the song and thanks so much for being interested in hearing more about the story behind the song. Thank you for your service!
