IN HONOR OF THE 10 FALLEN MARINES

When I heard that we lost 10 Marines in one incident and that Mr. Bush felt the economy and his glad-handing and back slapping of himself was more important then to even MENTION that 10 more are gone and 11 are forever wounded...it further appalled me.

It amazes me how he claims he is a man of God and yet his ability to continue the killing makes my mind reel.

Below are the names of the Fallen Marines...please take a moment to hold them in your thoughts/pray for their souls and their families. There were also four other service people that died the following day.

My heart is heavy for all of those who must now grieve...

Never take what you have for granted...

In Peace,
Barbara, Tirawa and Winston
