Hero Count

In Afghanistan,
September 11th is
still making heroes.

While we're remembering, let's remember our "forgotten war," too.

Oh...this took my breath away. I hadn't really thought about the other side of this.

A long, long war.

I know young men who were only boys when the war started, and now they are fighting themselves. You're right. We need to remember

:(

As always, you make me see things a bit differently.

You're absolutely right.

Incredible that a war in progress could be "forgotten", but you're right.

the soldiers contributions have been tremendous and they should be honored. but we've accomplished every goal in afghanistan. leaving is long overdue. the transnational corporations making money off war would sure like us to forget. so much of the news coverage is geared to make the 'war' a normal part of life these days.
good stuff.
