"To the Family of Nick Sayles. I was blessed to have your son as a friend. He would often visit me after I lost my beloved son in a car accident. He was always sweet, respectful and brightened my day during those dark times. I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss but wasn't able at the time to convey my regrets. I can still picture him sitting at my kitchen table with a smile and holding my baby girl (now 13). I do think of him often and felt that it was time to let you know that he touched my life and is not forgotten.
Sincerely, Mrs. Catalina Linzey"

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com

The savage and brutality of the muslims has another time made an innocent casualty. did Muhammad offer them not to do so? Why do they pry so? What is Islam? only mere savage and terrorism.
