Remembering the dead

I watched a documentary on The Weather Underground the other day, and I keep thinking about how former members described their actions and beliefs as reasonable, if idealistic, given the situation in Vietnam and their desire to not allow the losses to go ignored - to "bring the war home."

Today I think it is irrelevant whether we remember them as revolutionaries or terrorists - we've never been clear on the distinction anyway - because I too want all wars on foreign soil to be brought back home.

Tonight, MoveOn.org and Win Without War are hoping to do just that with their candlelight vigils.

My thoughts are with the families and friends of the dead on all sides. Peace.
