Ghosts of War


Every war is fought long after the last physical battle. It is the sustained battle for a dominating, ruling story about that war. Why did we go to war? How did we fight? Who were the righteous and glorious? The evil and devious? Who were the victors? What were the costs? War after war, a  repeating pattern. In this United States, it is a lethal pattern propelling us  into acceptance of the next war — and the next. The ghosts of war ask us to be skeptical.

  1. Nice piece Leslie. Questions that should always be uppermost in our minds. Unfortunately they are not and we keep falling into the same conflicts often not knowing why we got into them in the first place.

    Good work, visually and in prose.

  2. Leslie, John just sent me your website. I am stunned by your work. It is really powerful and it does serve to say 1000 words …and more.

I learn and am inspired by your comments!
