They Will Not Grow Old: Memorial Day 2008

This quote is from an article on CNN.com about Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery which contains the graves of those killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. I truly believe no further words are needed,

“Nino Livaudes was killed in Iraq in April 2003. At his grave is a multicolored, handmade card bearing the message: “You are my hero, Daddy. I am 4 years old, and I miss you and love you very much, Grant.”

  2. And this is just one out of many, many similar stories. Too sad, as you said, for words.
