Northeast Ohio Military Moms

Northeast Ohio Military Moms "I cannot possibly describe what it feels like to send your child to war. It's a bizarre explosion of fear and pride, helplessness and strength, anger and acceptance. As I placed the blue star in the window, I finally understood the hearts of all the mothers who had gone before me in history." Those are the words of Mary Anne Mayer, one of the many northeast Ohio parents who have sons and daughters serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and other hotspots of the world. In a new book, Love You More Than You Know, Mayer and co-author Janie Reinart collect the stories of several dozen Ohio military moms talking about their enormous pride, the worry that makes them sick to the stomach and the cathartic experience that comes from sharing their stories. Join the conversation as Mayer and Reinart talk with Regina Brett Friday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
