The Ultimate Sacrifice

NPR aired a difficult story this morning, about Section 60 Mothers. Section 60 is the area of Arlington National Cemetery reserved for the new graves for the soldiers who die in Iraq and Afghanistan. These mothers have formed a new family of sorts, through their shared experience of loss and grief. Listen to the audio on this one, listen to these mother's share a bit of their stories. It is sad, yes, but powerful. And necessary. People need to listen to these women and to remember their children.
