Through Thick and Thin

When faced with adversity, it's easy to believe that the universe is conspiring against us. However, the lessons we learn last a lifetime. Linda learns the difference between curses and kindness; ToRena works to recover economically after the 2008 crash; and Marlon uses comedy to lessen the pain of war. Three storytellers, three interpretations of THROUGH THICK AND THIN, hosted by Theresa Okokon.
