A Sad Milestone

The 1000th American soldier has died in Afghanistan, as recorded by the website iCasualties.


Participate in a vigil...

Join the American Friends Service Committee in telling the President: Not one more death, not one more dollar for war!

But though kind Time may many joys renew,
There is one greatest joy I shall not know
Again, because my heart for loss of You
Was broken, long ago. 
"Perhaps (To R. A. L.)," Vera Brittain, 1920
