Putting the news in perspective.

My hubby passed this along to me, and I'm passing it along to you.
This message is sent with the deepest respect.  This just made perfect sense to be shared.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she's a celebrity and a drug addict.  Charlie Sheen is all over the news because he is a celebrity and has multiple issues.

                      Justin Allen, 23;
                      Brett Linley, 29;
                      Matthew Weikert, 29;
                      Justus Bartett, 27;
                      Dave Santos, 21;
                      Jesse Reed, 26;
                      Matthew Johnson, 21;
                      Zachary Fisher, 24;
                      Brandon King, 23;
                      Christopher Goeke, 23; and
                      Sheldon Tate, 27.

These are all Marines that gave their lives this week for us.  There is no media for them. Not even a mention of their names.
In humble gratitude for their sacrifice, and with the deepest condolences to their loved ones, I'm passing this along.

[UPDATE]  My friend George pointed out that, every Sunday, ABC lists all of the Marines and soldiers who were killed that week.  Good point, George, and thanks for reminding me!
