Malachi is not forgotten

Dave sent me the link to this clip from a recent Al Jazeera English piece about Malachi Ritscher. If you are not familiar with Malachi's story, see my previous post about him here. You'll find a blog post here by one of the interview subjects in the video.

This story is hopelessly sad and frustrating, and I thought twice before posting the video. I might have decided against it if I hadn't heard a story on the radio this afternoon that included the sound of a Turkish mother wailing over the coffin of her son, who had been killed in the fighting with the PKK.

It's essential to remember how horrible war is. Malachi knew.
