It was a powerfully moving experience to walk among the boots and shoes, remembering the many lives lost in the wars of the last 11 1/2 years. Most of us pay little attention to the wars in our daily lives, but some families live with the grief of it every day.

I posted this on FB: City Hall Square Palo Alto: a pair of boots for each Californian killed in Iraq and Afganistan. A pair of shoes for each 1,000 civilians killed. I seldom think about these wars. Today I am grateful to the Multifaith Voices for Peace and Justice for reminding me -- reminding me of my appreciation for those who sacrifice for us, whether or not I agree with the underlying policies, reminding me that I am grateful that my sons, my d-in-law, others I love have not been called to sacrifice, reminding me that we must find alternatives to war. Too much senseless death. We are better than this.

But weren't we were greeted as liberators after we found the WMD we were told about, right?
Where are the war crimes trials?
