Wants more coverage of our heroes

I am pleased to see your coverage of the fallen Italian heroes in your newspaper. However, it makes even more striking the lack of coverage of our fallen American heroes. Where are they?

Where are the photos of their flag-draped coffins being loaded onto military aircraft, as you showed of the Italians? Where are the photos of the funerals with full military honors? Where are the photos of the mourners and flower-strewn monuments, as you showed of the Italians? Even more importantly, where is President George W. Bush?

Over 400 Americans have died now in his war - yes, this war that Mr. Bush initiated in the face of world opposition. Has Mr. Bush been to a single funeral? Has he paid a single visit to the family of a fallen soldier? The answer is no.

Again, I feel it is our moral obligation as Americans to pause, recognize, reflect and mourn for each and every American who gives his life in Iraq, because we all put them there. Please give us more coverage, and include some photos next time. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Stephanie Wilson, Evans, Ga.
