About 30 people walked from the Denali Overlook into downtown Talkeetna on Sunday to commemorate the 4th anniversary of the Iraq War. Grete and Linnie led the walk, beating drums that they had made. Some carried signs of peace and some questioned the war in Iraq. One boy rode a scooter and a dad pushed twins in a stroller. Other children skipped and ran along side.
On the news today I heard a story of how children in Baghdad can't go outside to play because their parents fear the violence. Are the lives of Iraqis better today, with limited electricity and water, civil unrest, living under "house arrest" to avoid random car bombings, snipings, and kidnappings?
When will the people of Iraq be able to walk peacefully on a sunny day?
