Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Artists in Today’s World ~ Ernie Pyle

Acknowledging Ernie (Pyle)

If I come back, I’ll go to the Middle East. When they use the words “creative use of a caustic agent”, they deceive themselves, they deceive. Yes, I will go to Syria to see firsthand this new kind of “humanitarian“ war. I will speak to the children and the old people who know the history of their land and hear their voices. I will tell their stories. I will go to Fallujah and see the dirty secret. And the other secrets. The story I told, the GI’s story in The Big One, is over. I will tell the story of the people, the poppy fields, the bastardized prophecies and these new wars and the reasons behind these invasions.
