Citizenship by death

A young, ambitious immigrant from Guatemala who dreamed of becoming an architect.
A Nigerian medic.
A soldier from China who boasted he would one day become an American general.

United by this simple phrase
American by death.

I wish i could say more but as we hit an ominous milestone in Iraq.
4000 dead
Let us not forget that some died protecting those who treat them as second class citizens
Let us not forget that some died trying to protect a country that was not their own.
Let us not forget that some died defending a freedom that was denied them.
Let us not forget that some died illegal immigrants because of laws.


Let us not forget that these Americans by death were aliens for life.

Let us not forget.

May their souls rest in the Lord's great peace. May their loved ones and friends be granted strength and solace to mitigate their loss. May those who lost their lives in Iraq also receive the Lord's peace.

What a sad day.
