If you're interested.............
There’s a powerful letter behind this image. Just click on the image. The language is strong and possibly offensive to some.
Here is an excerpt:
How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are"Supporting our Troops" and waving the flag and all that happy horse shit? I’ll tell you why. I’m a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq.
Helen, 8:15 PM
Powerful letter Helen. Thanks for sharing.
I'm a Marine Vietnam vet and that letter tore my heart and the picture broke it.
I've been speaking and writing against this war from the beginning.
Somehow we, the people of this country must take back control of our country and its institutions and stop this madness.

The image and the letter say it all: a child's terrible grief on the one hand and on the other hand, righteous anger from a surviving widow of this criminal war. Thanks for sharing.
(I found your blogs through some Crawdaddy article about the Grateful Dead--nice to meet another Deadhead).
I don't believe this letter.
Simply too politically motivated and pointed to be genuine.6000 miles...
