Waking up to today's news is horrifying. I know it doesn't do any good to watch, but it's impossible not to. The imagery from CNN of that Iraqi family, pulled out of their home by U.S. military, parents and several small children terrified, shaking, kneeling on their front lawn with arms in the air, I can't imagine the terror they are feeling. I can't imagine what's going thru the minds of the soldiers, trying to protect themselves, "secure" the city, but re-assure innocents that we are the "good guys" - even with the best intentions and best training, mistakes are bound to happen, this is so horrible.......What scars will all those involved carry with them for the rest of their lives?
