War can be a brutal event. We tend to sit back in our living rooms,
and view the barrage of information that comes across our television.
We easily can become de-sensitized to the true gravity and
danger of the battle front. Lives may be ended or altered forever
the heat of battle.

face with the cold reality of battle. Yet at the same time,

shore, truly captures the spirit and cause of fighting for what is
But a word of warning: You may not want to look at first due to the
disturbing content. But the more you look, the more you will
likely be drawn to and inspired by this moment. It may even cause

Please take a silent moment to view this tragedy. Remember that all
of us can be proud, and be brave...
God Bless America.
