Personalizing the losses

I just saw this at BAGnews. There's a link to the Rocky Mountain News story about his family and the damage his death in this idiotic war has done to them.

The howling animal joy that possessed me when my daughter entered the world 24 years ago is something he will never know. I guess that's why I experienced a very personal grief for a young man I didn't know. He was just a little older than my daughter.
