We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Ashley Gilbertson assembled this photo essay of the bedrooms of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and lovingly preserved by their parents and family. It won the annual award of the American Society of Magazine Editors and first appeared in the New York Times. It is displayed here to remind us that Memorial Day on Monday is about the dead.
