I've just read the most amazing blog post ... from an American soldier who was recently killed in Iraq. I know little of this man other than he was a seeming prolific blogger who left behind a partner, family and friends ... and a final message should the worst occur. Sure enough, the worst did occur as it seems to be happening all too often on all sides of the various conflicts around the world.
I'm not going to disrespect this man's final wishes by turning this into a political rant. Just wanted to express my sadness at the loss of this obviously intelligent and compassionate man (his post shows that he was a Babylon 5 fan!)
Take the time to read his final message. We all owe him that, along with all the fallen. If we all listened a bit more, maybe this world would be a better place.
