32 innocent young people killed for no reason
When 32 innocent young Americans, full of promise and in the bloom of youth are senselessly slaughtered, a stunned nation can only ask itself why and devote it's energies to ensuring that it stops and look for ways to prevent it ever occuring again.
What happens staggers the imagination, the carnage, suffering, fear and pain, the 32 families left with an unfillable void, shock, grief that will never quite be erased, and left with nothing but memories of their bright, vital sons and daughters and left wondering just what they would have achieved had they not met such a violent end..... in Iraq.
32 young Americans have been slaughtered in Iraq over the past 10 days. Doubtless you're just as filled with horror, shock, and overwhelming sorrow for the families as you are for the victims of the Virginia Tech horror show.
