I turned 51 today. Emily never will. She was killed in Iraq on my cousin Celia’s 51st birthday two weeks ago, September 12. Like reading the names on the Key West AIDS memorial, like reading about those killed 9/11, painful as it may be, we must read about Emily and the men and women who died before and after. They have made the ultimate sacrifice. They deserve to be remembered. God bless them, each and every one.
