Wow. Great/horrible post. That is, a well written and strong post about a horrible event. I can't think of anything to say to your Ramon except I'm sorry, which is inadequate. I was at a vigil last week. The hurting won't stop, but maybe fighting to stop others from feeling the same hurt will give the pain meaning.


Followed the link over from Digby's. Moving post, and very well done. The more I think about it the more convinced I am that in addition to trying to lift support for his war, Bush was also making an explicit response to Cindy Sheehan ... trying to make her feel guilt for protesting her own son's death. He's that much of a coward.


We have to help more young people understand that no promises a recruiter might make are worth putting themselves in harm's way to sustain vile lies. I would urge everyone to promote Leave my child alone!-- a site that helps parents opt out of the program that forces schools to give recruiters the children's contact information.


My heart goes out to Ramon and his family.
