I have a friend whose son was killed in Iraq a couple of days ago.
I knew the son when he was young, but, I can't really say I knew him well. But, I know the parents and this has really made me look at everything in a different light today.
It's so odd when you think about it deeply. We are living in "the future" yet we are still fighting wars in many of the same ways we did hundreds of years ago.
It's nearly the year 2007, why are we still losing lives to war? It truly seems like such a primitive concept. So very strange.
Yes, I know there's no good answer to this, and, Lord knows I am not looking for your political views here. Let's just agree and say the whole conflict is Paris Hilton's fault, OK?
