Lafayette CA Iraq War Memorial

Originally uploaded by NVH.
I happened to drive past this hillside, near the Lafette BART station and visible from Hwy 24, and stopped to take cameraphone pictures. It was on the news again last night, because red bows had shown up on the crosses yesterday. They interviewed various people, including, as usual, some who saw this as disrespectful of those fighting in Iraq. It’s sad when we’re so polarized that people can see a memorial to those who have died in the fighting as disrespectful of those fighting.

One cross had on it an Islamic crescent, and several had Stars of David.
