5 years

It has been five years since President Bush waged war on the Iraqi people.

I could spend a LOT of time writing about my thoughts on this war, but I won't.

Instead I want to acknowledge the loss of life that has happened during these past five years.

3,900 American Soldiers

61,369 Iraqi Civilians

Regardless of your feelings on the war, I think and hope that we can all unite in grieving the deaths of these men and women. War ravages families and communities and leaves a path of pain and loss regardless of the outcome.
