Everyday War

A comment from Riverbend had me thinking. Should we care? What did we start over there. Can we stop it?
We have 9/11’s on a monthly basis. Each and every Iraqi person who dies with a bullet, a missile, a grenade, under torture, accidentally- they all have families and friends and people who care. The number of Iraqis dead since March 2003 is by now at least eight times the number of people who died in the World Trade Center. They had their last words, and their last thoughts as their worlds came down around them, too. I’ve attended more wakes and funerals this last year, than I’ve attended my whole life. The process of mourning and the hollow words of comfort have become much too familiar and automatic
There is a great deal at stake in our elections. Let's not help the liars and thieves. Good people are dying on both sides.
