wanting memories

29 Mar

I found out yesterday that my friend’s husband was killed in Baghdad on Tuesday. They hadn’t even been married a year and they have a six-month-old daughter.

Last month another friend’s nephew was critically injured in Iraq. He’s still alive, but only just. His wife is pregnant.

I’m not going to go into a long soliloquy about the Iraq war right now. All of you probably know my hippy, liberal views by now.

But, enough is enough.

    I don’t think one has to be liberal to be against war. I feel a wave of depression every time I hear about another young person losing his life in a war zone. FYI, the term hippie (or hippy) was derived from the practice of some of injecting heroin into their hip to hide the needle marks.
