There is an article on the front page of today’s New York Times that every American should read.
It is about the war in Afghanistan.
Included in the piece are the faces of each of the 2,000 young men and women who have given their lives in the service of their country.
2,000 lives lost in a war that has gone on for 12 years. 12 years...the longest war in our history.
Yet no one talks about them.
Not even the two men campaigning to be their commander-in-chief.
We thank the Times for their reporting and for putting this story on their front page. It is a story that should be on the front page of every newspaper and every website that covers national news.
It should be front page news every single day.
Because what story could possibly more important.
