I found out that one of the soldiers whose name appears in Mark Scibilia-Carver’s “Scroll of Remembrance,” whose name I happened to mention on Episode 34 of the podcast today, is actually the subject of a documentary made in 2006 called The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez.
Don’t miss today’s episode of the podcast on this the 17th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. It was the most difficult episode of the podcast that I’ve done, and I had a hard time just getting through it, and honestly I have no idea if we handled such a difficult issue completely correctly. But we did our best, and our goal, our hope was that by publicizing his website, www.thecatholiccostofwar.org, and the Scroll of the Remembrance, we can remember the cost of these wars and the precious lives that have been lost and continue to be lost today, which go far, far beyond just the Catholics of course, and far, far beyond just the Americans, too.
The killing continues in Iraq. This popped up on my Twitter just a few days ago.
