Inside the Lives of American Nuns
For some Americans, nuns are an integral part of their religious community. For others, they're teachers. Those without personal interactions with the sisters might say somewhat vaguely that those are the women who sing "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria" in The Sound of Music. Still, most people don't know a whole lot about nuns' everyday lives. This week on Our America, Lisa Ling talks to women of all ages who have pledged themselves to God. Tune in on Tuesday, June 19th, at 10/9c to learn what draws them to this lifestyle—and what they miss about the lives they leave behind.
