I offer today’s witness in honor of mothers.

one way to support the fallen
one way to support the Iraqi people
Support the Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict (CIVIC)
many other ways to support the troops and the Iraqi people
one way to support victims of torture
one way to support the troops
one way to witness every day

image and words below the fold

from The Mother
by Padraic H. Pearse

I do not grudge them: Lord, I do not grudge
My two strong sons that I have seen go out
To break their strength and die…
I will speak their names to my own heart
In the long nights;
The little names that were familiar once
Round my dead hearth.
Lord, thou art hard on mothers:
We suffer in their coming and their going;
And tho’ I grudge them not, I weary, weary
Of the long sorrow…
