After more than five years, most of us have (admit it) started tuning out news about the war in Iraq. But we need to keep listening, because we need to understand what daily life is like for the Iraqi citizens and our soldiers. How else can we make decisions about our nation's future role in the war-torn country?
This Saturday, you can get a first-hand account, with a lecture titled "Six Weeks in Iraq." Indianapolis Star reporter Will Higgins and photographer Robert Scheer will discuss their own recent experiences in Iraq, where they were covering the experiences of Indiana soldiers.
The lecture takes place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, in the fourth-floor auditorium at Ivy Tech's North Meridian campus (Fall Creek and Meridian). It's free, but registration is required; contact Jackie Antis at (317) 921-4924 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
