As Promised...

The Women in BlackTayo Aluko
These numbers are staggering...20 American deaths in Iraq since this time last week. In case anyone is wondering how I got the number 4,033 while other reports are saying 4,032, I am using the figures at the icasualties temporary site. Apparently their main site was viciously hacked, but they managed to keep up with the relevant numbers. At the end of our protest yesterday we were reminded with a hauntingly beautiful song that there is so much more suffering, in Iraq and elsewhere, than we can even imagine, far beyond the number of Americans lost to this occupation. Thanks so much to our singer, Tayo Aluko from Liverpool England, pictured above, for giving us a moment of pause to reflect on that reality.
