Take Time Out This Memorial Day

to think about the true meaning of the day.

In the summer of 2003, 400 US deaths after President Bush declared victory in Iraq, a group of veterans in Southern California and their friends began to build a memorial to those who died in the war. They made a cross, a Star of David, and other symbols for other faiths for each solider who had been killed, painted them white and fixed them in the ground. It is a memorial resembling the Arlington National Cemetery. As the weeks and months passed, the memorial had grown to over 1,600. Arlington West is the name of a hour-long film that records some of the thoughts and emotions expressed by people who happened to visit the memorial one sunny day on a beach near Santa Barbara, California. - Political Affairs
