Giving honor where honor is due
Crucis has put up a video on his blog describing the heroism of Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.
He notes that very little has been published in and/or by the mainstream media about Lt. Murphy, or his heroism. That doesn't surprise me, of course; heroism's out of fashion with the media - unless it's something they consider heroic, such as saving a baby seal from global warming. The real thing doesn't pass muster, as far as they're concerned.
I'd like to thank Crucis for putting up this video. If you value freedom, and honor those who put their lives on the line so that the rest of us may remain free, go over to Crucis' blog and watch the video for yourself; then say a prayer for the soul of Lt. Murphy and his fallen comrades, and spread the word of what they did for us.
May his soul, and the souls of his comrades in arms, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
