Aspiring rock star Nathan Arizona has started the Letter to Iraq campaign. He wants to send a letter to the Iraqi people signed by ordinary Americans that apologizes for our mistakes (Abu Ghraib, among others) and expresses a wish for peace in Iraq. He’s got a moving song and video, too.
Will it make any difference? I have no idea. Iraq is such a mess it can’t hurt. Maybe if ordinary people did something on their own instead of governments or militaries or corporations, maybe that would make some small measure of difference. Who knows? Anyway, I’m signing it.
