We Were Soldiers

One of the scenes that most affected me from the movie, and the book, "We Were Soldiers" was the scenes where the loved ones recieved word that a soldier had been killed. The mental strain of such a job is unimaginable.

The last two pages of "The Week" from last week (which I just finished today) had an excerpt from Jim Sheeler's "Final Salute", a book about the modern counterparts of the men from the movie. Needless to say, I will not read this book, as the two page excerpt was enough to leave me blubbering "like a little bitch with a skinned knee", as Jason Mewes' Jay would put it.

Stop the fucking war.


  1. You should actually think about reading the book. It's really beautiful.
