Dignity: Fallen Heroes as political fodderhttp://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | SEE the flag-draped coffins, fallen heroes all,
But be gentle with your eyes,
For beneath the stars and stripes lie our broken hearts,
That can pay no greater price.
Beneath flags rest our honored,
Their sacrifice is not meant for photo op,
Nor political grist.
For ultimate sacrifice does not surrender dignity.
We must let families grieve,
Wonder if the Pentagon will allow us to photograph the irony.
