Commentary: The Death of Pfc. Lori Piestewa

Commentator Margaret Erhart talks about the way schoolchildren on an Indian reservation near Tuba City, Ariz., reacted to the news that Pfc. Lori Piestewa was killed in the war in Iraq. Some of the second graders were related to Piestewa, and all of them knew she was from their hometown. Erhart is artist-in-residence at the school.
