“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” ~President Dwight D. Eisenhower
To my brothers and sisters who served in Iraq for so long, welcome home. We’ve missed you.
That said–so long as there are yellow ribbons strung this time of year, amongst the red and green, the blue for Chanukah, the sparkling lights, the bizarre intersection of bustle and reflection that is our holiday season in the West…this song will always, always be for you.
