Gaza Day 17

In this second picture, the boy has been blinded by an explosion, yet still waves.

I had thought my country had turned the corner. I had naively thought that we could change. You can't change a culture that is addicted to violence. You can't change a culture that looks at these pictures and says "its their fault."

Things have irrevocably changed and I am frightened about what the future holds in store for us.

The fact that Obama and Congress do not see what is going on, the fact that they do not realize that this could torpedo any hope for peace in the Middle East, and that we will be blamed (rightly) is even sadder.
