A friend's son returned home from Iraq several months ago. She writes that, David's "adjusted well to civilian life." He's finishing up his Associates Degree and planning to begin working on his Bachelor's in January.
He's compiled a handful of videos from his deployment and has them posted at YouTube.com. View his collection here, but be warned that the "War is Hell" video contains graphic images.
Yes, that is my politically correct warning. Which makes me wonder. The Iraqi children are living with this violence. What kind of people will they grow up to be? Will they become numb to violence and death and continue the cycle? Or will they be so tired of it, that they will become a pacifist generation? We'll have to wait.
