"Collateral Damage" = People

Here's a video from a group called No More Victims "that connects American communities with war-injured children and their families. Community participants band together to learn how the child was injured, assess the child’s current situation, and work to meet the most pressing needs of the child and family."

This Iraqi girl is 6 years-old and was shot in the head by a member of the U.S. forces in her homeland. (Not sure if that means a soldier or a Blackwater contractor.) She was brought over here for medical treatment. It's amazing that she is all smiles and so winsome. I had to stop watching when she says that, if she could meet the person who shot her, she'd simply ask "Why?"
