Since yesterday was the anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, I decided to put together a small display highlighting some of the costs of the war. IMG 1632

The cost is staggering and it's still going up. A number of students noticed the poster. The reactions were interesting. Most looked very thoughtful; some shook their head in disbelief. I failed to find one student who thought we had any business in Iraq.

I also recall how different the students' attitudes are now than years ago. We started going into the schools in 2003 and at that time we encountered quite a bit of hostility. 9/11 was still fresh in everyone's minds and many people felt we were unpatriotic or worse.

Talked to several groups of students about starting a peace club. There's interest. Wish we could turn that interest into something concrete.
