Open Forum: Wishing we could stay out of war

Email

In a magazine I was reading the other day there is a picture of young Marine in Afghanistan, being carried away on a litter with both of his legs blown off. The look on his face is somewhere between bewilderment and pain. The article went on to say the young man mercifully survived his injuries. For a lot of us we just look at the picture and turn the page. The price we pay for war. For me I can’t help dwelling on what his life is going to be like from here on.
