I’ve had the honor to meet many a strong independent women in my life, and this episode was no exception. I sat down with Hollie McKay, author of “Only Cry For The Living” who has spent years covering the war torn Iraq/Syria region of the Middle East at the height of the ISIS onslaught. It was both inspiring and gut wrenching all at the same time, and really gave me a perspective reset that is always powerful and necessary to appreciate what we have and where we live.
