The human cost of the war in Iraq

Click this link for a news article about the war in Iraq.  The article is titled “For few, Iraq war has changed everything.”  I think the only thing I would argue with is that it is only for a few.  I think it has changed things for many, many people.  I cried on the morning of 9/11 first of all because I knew it would mean the U.S. would go to war, but even then I didn’t imagine it would mean two wars.   Since then I have heard stories from people who have been in Iraq, and from people who have family over there.  The human cost of this war is FAR greater than anything you will ever read or hear in the media.  Individuals and families are paying the cost on a daily basis.  And it will last for many, many years.  We need to get out of Iraq.

    Ahhh, if only the rest of the world saw things as we do – or is it that they are simply not willing to see? This war leaves a terrible legacy for all of us and for generations to come. Thank you for being willing to look even tho the view is so painful.
