War . . . What is it Good For?

This is a gut-wrenching video. If this little boy’s face and tears don’t break your heart, well . . . I pray that it will. There are so many casualties of war.  So many wounds that go unnoticed or unmentioned by the masses.  Yet, these wounds cut deep in family rooms around the world – whether a small town in Northwest Washington State or a bombed-out concrete shelter in Baghdad, Iraq.  For this little boy running in this American classroom, there his is equal – running through the debris-filled street in Tikrit, running through the crumbling downtown of Kabul, running through the protestors in Myanmar. 

All are casualties of war.
