Every day, more tears shed for what need not have been, and must be ended.

Thank you for your diligence in documenting the reality of our engagement in the Middle East, and for your petitions to a just God on behalf of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

One feels so helpless, Ralph. This is my way of bearing public witness - to the insanity of war (which I deplore) AND to the dedication and sacrifice of warriors (whom I honor).
