My extended clan is very fortunate, because despite the large number of us who served in the military, very few have paid the ultimate price (which is what Memorial Day is supposed to be about). The photo above is of Karina S. Lau, my great niece Mary Lau's sister-in-law. Karina was either the first or very near the first woman who died in the Iraq War. She served honorably and died doing her duty, but I still hold those who sent her in harm's way based on deceptions and ulterior motives accountable. Sorry for the politics, but the reality cannot be denied. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Let there be no more wars cooked up by those in power for their own motives and not the welfare of us all.

You are so right about the war being cooked up by those in power for their own motives. But I want to remind everyone that "those in power" would never have been in power had it not been for the Supreme Court decision in Bush v. Gore. The SCOTUS majority has continued to dismantle democracy since then. Imagine a world with president Gore. Karina would no doubt be alive in that world.
