Are We Numb?

What a sad, sad morning in America this is. You have to feel so very sorry for those poor kids who involved in the horrible shootings yesterday in Virginia. What is the answer?

I took this photo in Washington, D.C. in early March of 2003, at a rally I attended that was organized as a last ditch attempt to stop the invasion if Iraq. Unfortunately, we who marched then and protested Bush's mad plan to invade Iraq were not successful in preventing the lawless invasion that took place on March 20, 2003. Now, over four years later, as the seemingly endless war drags on at a staggering cost in human life, I wonder, as we mourn those poor kids who were killed yesterday in Virginia, if we have become numb to the thousands and thousands of innocent civilian deaths that have occurred and continue to occur each day in Iraq? Where are the protests? If we had a non-volunteer armed services, would even more people be demanding that we get out of Iraq?
