the fallen

now playing: nightline

i just don’t know what to say.

these faces that are scrolling past my eyes are someones’ brother, sister, father, mother, son, daughter…so many in civilian clothes.

so many of these dead soldiers are half my age or so.

i was ok until the photo of the soldier holding his toddler, kissing him on the cheek.

now i’m not ok anymore.

as many of you know, a broadcasting conglomerate, sinclair broadcast group, pre-empted this broadcast because they felt it was politically motivated.

what they don’t tell you on their index page is that executives from sinclair have contributed roughly $130,000 to Bush and his allies since 2000.

i wonder whose motivations are truly political here.

something is terribly, terribly wrong in our country tonight.
