I had a yard sign that said ‘Just Say No To War With Iraq”. It was vandalized the day the war started to say ‘Go’ instead of ‘No’. I was able to fix it with some spare house paint.

I just about bought a letter N from the hardware store to change the sign to ‘Iran’ last week. I was going to hang it from my porch just like I did with with the original sign.

It was a tough time. I remember classmates talking about nuking Iraq. I was definitely worried about the aftermath and here we are in 2020 where children who turned one the year of the invasion can be deployed there. It and Afghanistan really in that is my generation’s Vietnam but I concede we at least never had to worry about the draft.
