This list is incomplete by at least 20 names. Yes, these men and women knew that they could end up giving the ultimate gift to their country....but they NEVER dreamed it would be for a lie. I dare to present all of these honorable people in this way, because they are real. The pain of their families is real. Yes, I dare to show this painful list. I will never be the same because of this list... I will never be the same because of Iraqi families ripped apart by this war. I dare to express my pain and outrage by posting this list to represent the thousands, ours and theirs, who died for Bush's lies.

If this list offends, well, understand that I am damn well and deeply offended that these men and women, my brothers and sisters on the human walk, died. These troops for whom I begged and pleaded in my protest of this bogus war- that they should not be put in harm's way- died for lies, in a war plan allegedly made in secret almost a year ago.

I am disgusted that Bush gets a free pass yet again, when this is far more damaging to our country on many levels, than even Nixon's shenanigans could ever be. Time will reveal all and history will judge us; and there will be consequences that our children will have to deal with, because this war made us less safe than ever before, for a long time to come. Is it only when further tragedy occurs (I hope not)- then and only then will people have to admit something is very wrong- is that what it will take?

You know, I will be glad for the painful admission and resolution of cognitive dissonance, and opening of eyes. Those who have courage to understand and reconcile, will not be alone in those hard moments of realization, as long as I breathe. I know it will be difficult, because I have been in pain over all this for a long time now. All of my "This can't be"s, have slowly and reluctantly had to turn into, "Oh no, it's true"s. I know how hard it is.

While it would be easy to succumb to saying, "I told you so" and other humanly natural reactions to the inner struggle, I choose another way- I am here for those who are scared to see, but know something is up. I am with them. My heart hurts for their struggle, because that pain is familiar to me; I have been there.

I understand that pain. It is easy to shut down all reason and just choose to invest all in the belief in "My country, right or wrong!". I understand that. But it is harder to realize and admit that something is very wrong when one has believed unquestioningly, innocently, trusting in a gov't. that we're all taught would never do less than honorable things in the world.

But it's ok...it will be revealed and the cracks are already showing as daily revelations come. Be brave and know, that if I can wrap my mind around difficult truths and choose to know from the beginning, well, ANYONE can to do it too.

We will get through all this together and make things right again despite those who betrayed us, and to make sure that those lives lost were not lost in vain...Joyce in the mts.

Tell this woman that it's okay that her husband gave his life...for a lie...She deserves better than the struggle ahead. I wonder if Bush did his duty and hugged her to make it ok?
