Lives Lost

Flowing ribbons along a church's fence on Fifth Avenue caught my eye. I crossed the street to investigate. It turns out, every single ribbon contained the name, rank, and age of service members killed in the war in Iraq. It breaks your heart to see the entire fence was filled with it, representing more than 3000 service personnel killed, and tens of thousands of Iraqi civilian along with them. If this doesn't compel people to question the wisdom of their leadership sending their military to an ill conceived war and demand and end of all this carnage, I don't know what will.
