    Dear Forumers, please spend a minute every day thinking about these people...

    http://projects.washingtonpost.com/fallen/

    Whatever you may think about the politics of it all, these men and women have fought for freedom and democracy against the forces of tyranny and oppression.

    Many of them are just out of high school (using army wages to pay for their university education) and many have sacrificed their lives for the safety and security of their fellow countrymen as well as bringing liberation to the oppressed peoples of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    You can't help but feeling sad after reading the profiles on the website above.

    As we approach Anzac day in Australia and New Zealand, please take a moment to salute them.
