We’re Still at War: Photo of the Day for October 14, 2009

Elmo takes time to hug some children during the morning performance of the Sesame Workshop’s Talk, Listen, Connect initiative show in U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart, Oct. 2. The Sesame Street characters address the topic of deployment and discuss healthy ways that military children can deal with them. More than 1,650 children, parents and teachers attended the two performances. (Photo by Brittany Carlson via army.mil.)


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
