Joseph Dwyer


Joseph Dwyer died a few days ago. The guy who took this picture wrote a moving tribute to him in the Washington Post. He was an Army Medic who helped to save this poor Iraqi child who was just as much a victim as Joseph Dwyer was. He died because he never came home from Iraq. The Post-Tramautic Stress Syndrom that has plauged so many of our best and brightest condemened him. He is one of the many faces that should be remembered. He is one of the ones that paid the ultimate sacrifice. His sacrifice was for a monumental mistake that we as a nation will have to dig out of for a very, very long time. I am sure that George W. Bush thinks about it every day. But, I wonder what it is about power that allows a person to be so blind as to not see the results of this.
