When Did We All Become Murderers?

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Jack Delano AT&SF Railroad locomotive shops, San Bernardino, CA 1943 Appalled doesn’t cover it. Disgusted won’t do either. Angry doesn’t come close. Maybe I have yet to learn of a word that would express my feelings on the following topic. There’s a disease, an epidemic, that spreads through out the western world. We are all turning into accomplices to murder. And I still believe we are better than that. Just perhaps not all of us. The US, and the

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Alfred Palmer Women as engine mechanics, Douglas Aircraft, Long Beach, CA 1942 That Europe let almost 1000 people die in the Mediterranean in one night shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, at least not to those who are still occasionally awake.

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Lewis Wickes Hine Boys working in Phoenix American Cob Pipe Factory 1910 Yes, more Greece, ever more Greece. Well, the focus is still very much there.
