Honoring the dead...

Thinking of the war dead

The NYT has photos and brief information about the majority of the US military personnel who have died in the Iraq war. While it's apparent that the point of the exercise for them is to highlight that we've topped 1000 dead, I think we should use it for a chance to honor and appreciate these men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the US. When you can, take the time to look at as many photos as you can, read about each one, send prayers for their families, and thanks to their memories. I think what they were doing was a necessary and important task. I wish it could have been done without death. I'm grateful they were willing to do the hard work that wicked and inhumane people made necessary.

Let's just all assume that the NYT is a patriotic institution and intends to inspire us to rededicate our efforts to completing what these brave people have so well begun.

Thank you New York Times. There's not a lot I can do to help our efforts, but I will certainly give all possible support to President Bush and Vice-President Cheney and the administration as they fight this global war against terrorist madmen. And I'm grateful they and our troops are willing to do the hard work that feckless appeasement has made necessary....
