I typically put links in my sidebar, with little snippets of my opinion about the piece. This one, however, deserves my full attention, a dedicated blog post, and a day’s worth of prayer.
From all of us, really.
When I saw the trailer for Stop Loss in the theatres, I was so incredibly proud that someone made that movie. As our troops are cycled and recycled through their tours, with no promise of it ending, it’s so easy for us civilians to forget that we ARE still at war. There are STILL yellow ribbons about.
Babies are still being born without ever meeting their parents.
We are five years into this war. That means that this year’s kindergarden classes will have never known a world without war. Some troops have been stationed overseas for the better part of five years. Five years. Think five years back. Aren’t you a completely differet person than you were five years ago? So why are we in the same situation?
Just a thought on today’s five year anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq.
