This memorial to the U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq is at Santa Monica Beach, next to the famous Santa Monica Pier. There is a cross (or star or moon) for each dead; there is also a sign that says if all Iraqis killed were so honored it would cover the whole beach. No matter how you feel about the situation politically or ideologically, the overwhelmingness of it is halting.
