Memorial Day

May 28, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 8:42 am

I’m not sure if it’s the pregnancy hormones or what, but I started crying reading the Sunday comics yesterday (no, not because Family Circus is painful to read or Zippy the Pinhead makes no sense).  There were a few Memorial Day-themed comic strips, Doonesbury and Opus, which got me really choked up.  It’s not like I don’t get exposed to news of deaths in the Iraq war on a daily basis (NPR), but seeing visual estimates of the magnitude of deaths of young soldiers (both comics showed this) really struck me. Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant?  Maybe it’s because I think of little Genghis getting sent off to war?  Or maybe it’s because I think the soldiers should get to come home?  I’m not sure why, but hopefully all the troops know that there are people thinking about them who want them to come home safely.
