the stones of war -

I saw my neighbor today.   When her son was in preschool, they met a lovely family with a son of the same age.  This son served two tours in Iraq.   He was then posted back here, expected to just  hang out at the barracks with polished medals the order of the day, until his last few months were up.  This was expected after he lived in hell in Iraq.  Why couldn't he have just been released, or at least treated like an adult?   Anyway, I have said what happened before, that something slipped for him, and he ended his life.  This man should have been helped upon his return.  Every person returning should be helped.  The pain of this war just goes on and on, and round and round, and Bush is incapable of any feeling on it,  any true emotion, while the rest of us are being ground up inside, while we watch beautiful children destroyed.  I am angry and sad.
