Political Neros, Combat Heroes

While our politicians the world over dither and argue semantics, this short essay today in Salon will force you to actually consider what war means to real people. Like the roots of a huge tree hidden beneath the ground, I think we selfishly forget what lurks behind the numbers.

I don't have any answers. I just know I shamefully turn the page a little quicker each day because I don't want to consider what we've become. One thing I know: politicians don't send their own kids into this arena.
