Caskets on Parade

Posted by on September 24 at 14:00 PM

As I wrote that last post, a parade of “caskets” draped in American flags was passing by. In the past, these types of casket demonstrations have had one casket for each American soldier killed in Iraq.

There are close to 2,000 American soldiers now dead from the Iraq war. I’ve been sitting at this window for about 20 minutes, and the caskets are still passing by outside.
