Rest peacefully

I have known a man killed in Iraq.

His name was Alex Wetherbee. He lived with me in the CNR house during my first year at college.

We didn't really get along, but we didn't have much in common, either. Tyler went climbing with him once, and with Alex's girlfriend, Heather. Alex graduated that year with a major in Forest Resources. Heather followed a year later and they were married. They've been married for two years. Alex died in combat in Iraq last Sunday.

I was wondering when this war was going to touch me, and now it has.

I don't know what else to say.
