Obits from Fort Hood
Every year or so, there's a mass murder or disaster that takes multiple lives. At that point, after people absorb the event caused the deaths, they turn to what by any other name are obituaries.
So it happened again Friday, a day after the Fort Hood shootings. Who were these people who at one moment were waiting in line or tending to others, and the next moment were losing blood and life on the ground in Texas?
They were veterans and newly enlisted soldiers, a physician's assistant and a nurse practitioner. We all read them, because we want to know who were these people who were among us, and whose lives were lost? It's a universally human reaction.
