Memorial Day

Actually, it's the day after Memorial Day. But I've been thinking about the war in Iraq and how disturbing this whole deal is. In honor of the recent holiday, I recommend C-Span's American Perspecitves episode from Walter Reed Hospital. This is an .rm file, so I guess you need RealPlayer to watch. Here's their blurb on the show:
A special C-SPAN program features conversations with three Army soldiers and a Marine about their personal experiences in Iraq and at Walter Reed Medical Center. Additional conversations take place with the Commander of Walter Reed and a we take a look at physical and occupational therapy for injured soldiers. Almost four thousand patients from Operation Iraqi Freedom have been treated at Walter Reed since the war began.

Some of the images in this program are a bit disturbing, but it's not nearly as disturbing as the fact that this country is in an all-out war with no end in sight and everyone just acts like nothing's happening. Now that's disturbing.
