Mary McHugh visited the grave of her fiancé, Sgt. James J. Regan, who was killed in Iraq in February. He is buried in the new Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery for those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I think that photography is my preferred form of art for a few reasons. 1) I think I'm actually decent at it. 2) More importantly, pictures can really move me emotionally. There was a beautiful anti-war exhibit when I was in Paris 3 years ago and I just walked around crying at every picture I saw. I'd totally forgotten about it until I saw this picture that was posted in the NYTimes. I hate war...

I will try to keep politics out of my blogosphere, but I will just say that I am very anti-war, and consider myself a pacifist to the core. This image presents one of the many reasons why I think people killing other people is really, really dumb.
