Rise against the war

/ 26 May 2012

Take a moment and watch this coverage of the protests against NATO in Chicago. I found the testimony of these Iraq and Afghanistan veterans very moving. I wish I could embed the video, but I couldn’t find a way to do that.

In the absence of that code, here’s a version of the song that ends the coverage (linked above). It’s a song called “Hero of the War” written by Rise Against.

Until we remember that the "budget crises" we're in can be laid at the door of these illegal, unwarranted and obscene wars I don't know if we're ever going to be able to return to real prosperity in this country. We have a long road of healing and reconciliation ahead of us, and it has to begin in confession.
