Brian:

And let's also not forget the quote that accompanied the photo. From the mother of the boy who will never see his father again:

"He's still looking for a new normal -- normal doesn't exist for us anymore."

No one should forget the human heartbreak and despair that lie behind the photos.

That photo demands a Pulitzer Prize.

Thank you to the Golczynski family and all the others who have made the greatest sacrifice for all of us. It's because of them that we are all still free to disagree with our government and each other.

Absolutely. Imagine how much more that father could have taught his son.

Brian:

Absolutely. Imagine how much more that father could have taught his son.

And imagine how much more respectful you could be.

If you tried. (almost impossible isn't it?)

But you hardly ever do, it's easier to post snarky little comments on a post that doesn't rate it.

Isn't there a veteran somewhere you planned to be taunting, Brian?

Irish K:

Looking at this photo dredges up the memory I have of the comments made by my Senator Dick Durbin in the well of the U.S. Senate. I wonder if Durbin could look that child in the eye and tell the boy that his Father was the equal of Hitler's SS and that his father's sacrifice means nothing. This sacrifice meant something and it will not be forgotten.

I think that father taught his son a lot. More than apparently yours did Brian.

epador:

I've known personally 13 who have died in my service time, and many WWII vets from my parents (who both served in the Navy during the WWII). Plenty more wounded I've treated. No snark on any of them or any US warrior to my face or this disabled vet will be tempted to bleed it out of you.

SAHMmy:

It is important to remember that there is nothing a liberal is willing to die for.

Nothing.

They believe themselves the be-all, end-all of everything.

They just can't wrap their emasculated brains around anyone else being willing to die for such concepts as freedom and liberty.

As Americans, I think they are defective.

Brian:

And imagine how much more respectful you could be.

And you should be more respectful of those who are currently living. If you tried.

it's easier to post snarky little comments on a post that doesn't rate it.

Oh yes, and how much more noble it is to take the image of a devastated little boy, and then claim that simply because you feel bad for him, your cause is more just and respectful than those who want to prevent other little boys from sharing his experience.

"Oh yes, and how much more noble it is to take the image of a devastated little boy, and then claim that simply because you feel bad for him, your cause is more just and respectful than those who want to prevent other little boys from sharing his experience."

Spoken like someone who just doesn't get it. Try explaining that to Nick Berg. Oh, that's right. You can't.

Jeff Blogworthy:

"...those who want to prevent other little boys from sharing his experience."

Except for the other little boys dads who die because they have been killed by Islamofascists of course. But they don't count. Any enemy of America's is a friend of yours.

According to the leftist view it's all just a bunch of molecules haphazardly banging into each other anyway, so what's the problem? But such a view would be far too consistent wouldn't it? You only wear that hat when killing babies or having sex with horses.
