They Deserved Better

This is like the difference between the first born child and the third. Parents have pictures of baby's first meal, poop, they keep shoes and outfits, the first day of school, etc. The third gets hand me downs, very few pictures and an older sibling takes them to school on their first day.
U.S. casualties: "As of Tuesday, at least 1,960 members of the U.S. military had died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. The latest identifications reported by the military:

-- Army Lt. Col. Leon G. James II, 46, Sackets Harbor, N.Y.

-- Army Staff Sgt. Gary R. Harper Jr., 29, Virden, Ill."
At the beginning of this immoral debacle the fallen were noted and appreciated more. Now there are no pictures, no stories, just the cald hard facts. Death fatigue has set in. As long as it doesn't affect them personally, people don't care anymore it's just too far away and their lives are falling apart here at home.

Such a shame.
