Who are we now?
I got this photo from AmericaBlog, and it is a fitting display of what the torture debate is about. Currently, I am suffering from bit of dissonance over all of this. I grew up with the notion that this country is noble, and while I have come to realize how that view is extremely naive, there is still part of me that wants that to believe it. I worry that when they record the history of our nation, this will be the point when it all fell apart, it is this point that we have stopped being a beacon.
