U.S. Military Dead in Iraq: 2540

Iraq Body Count Max: 43269

No, really. Let's all just go back to shopping at Wal-Mart. Please. Continue. Life will go on uninterrupted. Don't worry. We're winning. We're totally and completely secure in our actions in Iraq.

Everything is fine.

Everything is great.

When you see the mothers pouring their sorrow into the streets, look away. They sacrificed for the greater good. Their losses will be compensated in our strong economy and our strong faith in God. When you see a 22 year old veteran, praise him. Tell him 'Thank You for Sacrificing Your Legs in a Car Bomb. Please don't drain our welfare system now that you are suicidal.' Support your troops. Be pleasant to them until it is too difficult to see them. Pass them by if it becomes...uncomfortable.

When the mothers pour out their sorrows at the Capitol, shun them. They've gone too far, then. Silence them. Ignore them. They are not helping morale.

When you see uniformed children boarding planes at the airport, salute them and smile. Be happy for them. Congratulate their parents on raising such fine citizens. This is okay. Do NOT support anyone who questions her child's role in the Iraqi resettlement. That is reprehensible.

And when you see the fresh graves smattered here and there in your city's federal cemetary, look away. We beg you. Look away.

    What I Live By:
    We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, unremembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always— A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) And all shall be well and All manner of thing shall be well When the tongues of flame are in-folded Into the crowned knot of fire And the fire and the rose are one. -T.S. Eliot "Little Gidding"
