Yesterday, President Bush posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest award one can receive in the military, to Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy (something the mainstream media didn't find important enough to cover). In this video, you'll find the ceremony, and President Bush entails the bravery and selflessness that earned Lt. Murphy the award.
May God bless Lt. Murphy and his family.
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers. Know the line has held, your job is done. Rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up where you fell, The line has held. Peace, peace, and farewell.
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill
