In Memoriam


It seems fitting today to remember the more than 28,000 men, women, and children killed in El Salvador during Ronald Reagan’s proxy war against an elected government in the 1980’s.  This is a photo I took of their memorial wall in San Salvador.  It is modeled after our Vietnam memorial.  For the Vietnam death toll to have been proportionate based on relative population, we would have to have lost over 1.3 million people.  The results of this evil campaign, which extended to Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, are the refugees at our border today. These people, who are so callously dismissed and discarded by our president and his supporters, are the product of our actions.  They are our responsibility.
