NEW: What was the inspiration for the Survivor Psalm?

Frank Ochberg reads the "Survivor Psalm." The Psalm in the form of a bookmark has been distributed to thousands of trauma survivors. Frank wrote the psalm after working with victims of crime, and wanting a statement that would reflect a state of mind after therapy was completed.

length: 1:53
NEW: Frank reads his poem for veterans called "My Wounds Are Not For You To See."

Listen to Frank Ochberg read "Memory Shouldn't Be..."

Note: after clicking on the link, you will need to wait for a few minutes while part of the poem is "buffered" (sent) to your machine. Another option is to 'right click' on link, and save it to your computer...this may take a little longer

Regarding different audio formats (.mp3 vs. .wav):

1. MP3 is a new format that is much smaller than the .wav format. It will download much quicker, but you need to have an MP3 player. If you are interested in obtaining one, I recommend downloading the free player at: www.musicmatch.com. Another option is www.winamp.com.

2. The .wav file is larger, but should play on any computer that has sound enabled (make sure your speakers are on!)
