Five fucking years. I remember marching 5 years and one month ago. In vain. I have been watching Democracy Now each morning this week and listening to the testimonials of the IVAW Winter Soldiers. I heard myself keening this morning. It is filled with the horror of what our soldiers have done and been ordered to do in this country. It was an innocent country and we have raped and killed it. The soldiers are bringing the horrors unresolved and unhealed and even unreported by any corporate news - back to this country.
We will be feeling the effects - the pain, the hate, the grief and the guilt for decades to come.
