On a More Serious Note

Monday, October 1st, 2007

One of my daughters best friends was injured in Iraq. This was a boy who sat around my kitchen table talking about art life philosphy movies,  and games for many hours. I have had many days thinking about all the young men who have sat around that table and many of whom are now fighting or training to fight in this conflict.

His story in his own words on his www.myspace can be found by searching Daddy Esco. He was hit by an IED.  IED attacks topped 81000  in Iraq  (25,000 so far this year)  leaving behind  21,000 wounded or killed Americans, 11,000 Iraqi civilian injuries and 600 deaths of Iraqi Security forces.
