Masterful storyteller Kevin Kling shares his perspective on how we are all connected to one another, whether, like Kling, you’re from Osseo, Minn., or a small Hmong village in Thailand. Whether you fought during the Vietnam War or raised your voice in protest. Whether you got eight stitches on the back of your head or a thousand stitches from head to toe.

Kling performed this monologue, in addition to another piece about how we all carry the war with us, as part of the Minnesota Remembers Vietnam “Epilogue” event at The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.
