“The real problem is not that we are different, nor that we disagree and have conflict. It's that most of us automatically view conflict as something negative rather than as a tool God can use to help us better understand ourselves and one another.

...In Memorium

This report was in today’s Ft. Worth Star Telegram

Sgt. 1st Class William R. Brown, 30, of Fort Worth died Monday in Sperwan Ghar, Afghanistan, after a bomb detonated near his vehicle in a convoy. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, N.C.

And, from the Dallas Morning News(courtesy of Blackfive) comes the announcement:
Spc. Aguirre, 21, was working as an Army combat medic when he was killed Sunday in Baghdad. According to the Department of Defense, he died of injuries suffered when his patrol encountered enemy forces.
The story, as well as Blackfive's post, detail how regardless of personal danger, Spc Aguirre went out to aid a fallen brother.

At our house, we remember the cry of the warriors:
"Tell them of us and say,
For their tomorrow, we gave our today."
--The Kohima Epitaph--

SFC Brown and Spc. Aguirre, we remember what you have given. And we say thank you for the tomorrows you have given others. May God give back to your families more than they have sacrificed and lost.

And, now, we dance In Memoriam.
