How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Red Sweater Project

Current number of American soldiers killed in the Iraq conflict:2416

I came accross this site tonight. The project titled "Red Sweaters Art Installation" was inspired by the war in Iraq. Anyone who can knit or crochet can participate in her effort to collect "mini" red sweaters. To date she has over 1500 sweaters hung on her trees. Each sweater represents an American soldier killed in Iraq since 2003. The picture of the tree in her front yard would make anyone think about how many lives are affected by this War.
