I try to keep my blog a happy, non-political place, but this really stopped me in my tracks.
"'american kills' by chilean-born new york based artist sebastian errazuriz is a public
installation showcasing the suicide rates of US soldiers. after searching on official
war sites on the internet, he accidentally found out that 2 times more american soldiers
had died in 2009 by committing suicide than those killed during that same year in the
war in iraq; an alarming comparison that errazuriz had personally never read or
heard about before." (full story here)
I'm not trying to say anything negative about the military here, I am thankful for their protection each and every day. However, are we protecting them? Just something to think about on this Sunday, and keep these men and women in your thoughts on this beautiful day.
