Call to action 

Here is a harrowing picture showing a dead or dying child in Iraq (via Harry's Place). Its caption reads
Picture released by the U.S. Army Tuesday, May 3, 2005 shows a U.S. Army soldier comforting a child fatally wounded in a car bomb blast in Mosul, 360 km (225 miles) northwest of Baghdad, Iraq, Monday, May 2, 2005. 15 Iraqis were wounded in the combined suicide bomb attack. (AP Photo/U.S. Army)
I also want to remind readers of the Beslan incident here. Political violence that costs the life of a child is so terrible that it calls on all of us to work harder in our idealistic political engagement, however small our individual contribution will be.

I can't even imagine how that soldier will process this after the war. I'm sure he'll never forget the feeling of that child in his arms. Horrific.
