These photos were taken at an event held to raise awareness (and money) for veterans who are adapting to life-changing injuries.
I was opposed to the first Gulf War. Robb and I marched in protest to the second Iraq war.
But that doesn't mean my heart doesn't go out to every single person who is touched by war. Quite the contrary.
I think it would be best if we all look at the photos, and read what's been written about this event, and then think our own thoughts. Let's not use the comments section on this blog to argue about our feelings on the wars that the United States is involved in, or air our grievances about American presidents.
Instead, let's consider what it this event might have meant for these soldiers and their families and friends.
