Top News - Anti-War Mom Gives Up on Peace Movement - AOL News Sad news of despair and hopelessness. Saying that America is more concerned with American Idol than the illegal occupation in Iraq has more Truth than most want to admit.
The reality of the war has hit my neighborhood again lately. Derek Weatherbee, one of the kids I coached Basketball with my oldest son has been called back to Iraq for the third time. I have worked with Derek's father Ed for nearly thirty years and Derek's uncle Doug is one of my best friends. It just wrong for us to be there. And more people now than ever would agree. But we are still there, and the outcry grows dimmer. And each party is practicing politics as usual. Sad but true.
