Glorification of death a concern

Re: Soldiers falling in Afghanistan.


I can truly imagine and appreciate the sadness and sorrow of the mother and families of the last four Canadian soldiers that have fallen in Afghanistan.


However, when I hear words like “he died for a cause he believed in,” quoted from the mother of one our fallen soldiers, and when we start glorifying death like that, I am inclined to comment by saying that this is adopting the exact same mentality of the suicide bomber who killed our four soldiers.

Wasn’t he or she also fighting for a cause he or she believed in?
