A Quiet Statement

There's been so much loud nonviolence in the news - the 24 hour "Live Earth" music festival, Cindy Sheehan's threatened run against Nancy Pelosi if she doesn't end the war, and all the chatter by the candidates left and right. On my walk yesterday, I came across a little sign, a small gesture, worthy of note. As we walked closer, we found this tiny corner was dedicated to the fallen of the Iraq war. No political statement, to judgment, simply a remembrance and an opportunity for reflection.

When I read this article, I remembered a movie called "The Grave of Fireflies". It shows short hollow lives of a brother and a sister who lived during WWⅡ. It simply tells us the meaninglessness of wars without criticizing American government or anything. I think that's why the movie is well-known even in America.
