I've tried all day to think of something profound to share about this significant day, but words fail me. I played bunco tonight with my girlfriends. One of my bunco babe buddies has a son in Iraq. I can see the worry in her face when she speaks of him. He isn't scheduled to return home until a year from October. That means that we are still going to be there a year from now. It is truly astounding to me that we are willingly losing our most precious resource. I think there is something desperately wrong with this picture. I'm not very eloquent, but I am sad for our country, and all of our parents who have lost their children. Our politics pale in comparison to the loss we are all suffering. This music video brought me to tears. I had not heard this before and I really think Pink says it better than I ever could.
