After five years at war, more than 4000 US troops killed , a military surge which has cut down on violence - have we forgotten about Iraq?
Iraq was on the minds of students at Wilton High School two years ago, when theater arts teacher Bonnie Dickinson started developing "Voices in Conflict," a play using letters and essays written by Iraqi civilians and American soldiers serving in Iraq.
The play was banned from the being performed at the high school, because of worries about the content. It was given new life, and was performed to raves in New York, and now it's a CPTV special...airing tonight at 9.
Today on Where We Live, we'll talk with the play's creators and we'll talk about the Iraq war, and the American public's view of it with veterans.Later, we'll ask you to join the conversation: Has the economy pushed the war to the back burner? Have we forgotten a war we're still fighting?
