Non-Cognitive Survival

A narrative essay by – Heather SpoonheimWar stories often relate extraordinary tales of soldiers who have survived the grimmest of odds. As we zoom in on a soldier hanging on for dear life in the belly of a landing craft headed for Omaha Beach we can hear the screams of those being blown to bits in the landing crafts around his.

A narrative essay by – Heather Spoonheim
