05/29/2005: Dr. Abby's Dr. Dad is A Very Wise Man Indeed....
and I probably won't be writing any special Memorial Day post. Abby's Dad said it all in his letter to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
I guess the Iraqi War is the final straw in the dissolution of any heroic memories. We entered this war based on a lie. We entered it unprovoked. Itís now justified by saying that Hussein was a bad, dangerous man, his soldiers committed atrocities. I now see our president as a bad, dangerous man, and read about our soldiers commiting atrocities. America is just another country with the foolish notion that only power can prevail in the world - power without principles.
What am I to remember on Memorial Day? What I feel is shame.
