Your time with us was far too short
Dealing with your loss will be hard,
When I think about what this world has lost
I want to just shut out the world and cry,
But I will not do that.
Because you gave your life for something much greater than you or I
So, I will remember you as the Hero that you are
And never let what you did in your life cut short be forgotten
And that is the best way I know to honor you

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

  1. People should protest the Iraq war harder, it's taking the lives of too many young people. The only reason citizens fought Vietnam so hard was due to the draft.

  2. Wednesdays Hero is an awesome idea!!!!! I'm here to pass on an award that I received that you can find here. Remember to share the love!

  3. What 'freedoms' are these poor people exactly fighting and dying for ??

    I am sure that their parents are not interested in any of this 'hero' rubbish…they are mourning the loss of a son or daughter. There is no comparison.

    This ugly, needless and useless war needs to stop. We do not need 'heroes' – we need lives saved. No more killing. No mother wants a flag on a coffin…she wants her child alive and well.

    Damn George Bush. And damn anyone who supports this mass murder.
