A refugee woman is seen at the refugee camp for the internally displaced in Kalma, home to 80,000 people on the outskirts of Nyala, the capital of South Darfur state on November 8, 2010.

Ron Capps witnessed atrocities in Kosovo, the brutal cruelties perpetrated in several conflicts in Africa, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the genocide in Darfur, serving as both a senior military intelligence officer and as a Foreign Service officer for the U.S. Department of State. The cumulative effect of these experiences, combined with the helplessness of his role as an observer, propelled him into a deep depression and a long bout with PTSD. He writes about his experiences in Seriously Not All Right: Five Wars in Ten Years.
