A New Twist On Reconciliation

I've always loved this old image of these two Civil War vets. If ever there were an example of "a picture is worth a thousand words", this is it. And I found the use of this iconic image quite compelling, given our increasingly polarized culture. How true, how true.

I can appreciate this picture. The fighting was long over and two soldiers can understand what each went through. I often say I would rather sit down and have a beer with a former North Vietnamese soldier than with one of our citizens who fled to Canada.
