Ten Years Later

Albuquerque Woman in Black
Woman in Black stand silent vigil outside the federal courthouse in Albuquerque, New Mexico in March 2004.

It was nine years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I covered the one year anniversary of the war in Iraq for a local paper.  I don’t think that any of the Woman in Black that had been standing in silent vigil downtown every Thursday for the year thought that this war would go on for so long or cost America so much.
