This morning the Washington Post dedicated four paragraphs on page A6 to a story of the two Sailors who were captured in Afghanistan on Saturday.
After several minutes of searching the Internet, I found an AP item which reports NATO has announced that one of the bodies has been recovered. Dead.
Now...let's 'google' Tiger or Lindsay Lohan. Ahhh...countless blurbs to read.
On Saturday July 24th, five U.S. Soldiers were killed and two were captured. I know, I know...death results from war. I get it. What I don't get and what is irritating me more and more with each passing day...America doesn't seem to grasp that these are fellow Americans, who have families who adore them. On Saturday, seven families were changed forever. Many will say it's a job with risk. Just as Police and Firefighters...jobs with risk.
Come on, Folks... these are our Soldiers. OUR Soldiers. When one or more of them die or are captured...we must care. Please pray for their families.
