Well, a bunch of them anyway. And it’s long overdue.

This photo is from 2003, the day my son was born:

My son's birthday and the war

This is my son today:


This is taking far, far too long.


  1. And 6,000 more by 9/1. I just saw that story on CNN and thought, “Why have I not heard more about this?”

    My husband and I were at a show watching a band play the night the U.S. invaded Iraq. Millions of lives ago. We had one baby, not even 2 years old. Now, we have four kids, and that baby is 9 1/2.

  2. Slightly off topic: your son was an absolutely gorgeous little newborn!

  3. My Madeline was born the day we went to war. I saved the newspaper from that day. I am sure she will like to have it some day, but it was a terribly sad headline for a day that was so special for my family.
    I just keep watching Maddow over and over tonight. She was the perfect person to share the news with the world.
