Oct 12th memorials

Two GWOT memorials came on the 12th, and both are worthy of your attention:

9 years ago, it was the U.S.S. Cole bombing. *Here* is last year's thread on that, with the roll call and links to photographs.

7 years ago, it was the Bali bombings in the Kuta tourist district. 202 dead, 240 injured in a triple bomb attack. They have been avenged, but the danger of J.I. (Jemaah Islamiyah) is still out there. The recent demise of Noordin Top is just the latest stage of the battle in Indonesia.

how so easily we forget---

because we don't take the time out in our lives to at least take a second out to at least give a thought!

thanks for the reminder!
