This kid was a fighter, and by all accounts fun and funny too...
And a fan of the core, how could they possibly not do this.
And I really need to dust off my lap top apparently.

To defend people who cant defend themselves. I think they were right where they needed to be.

Ghosts are a good warm up when you're practicing to fight lava monsters.

Lava monsters that hate our freedoms.

Too bad he didn't have more time, kid could have taught a lot of adults about the important things in life. Every time I hear the song "will I dance for you Jesus" or whatever I think of Brett and you evil bastard Farkers. You are some decent people under the layers of nastiness, well except for acanuck.

Kid was tough, Marines respected that.
Sounds like the little boy knew what the real meaning of life is.

I didn't know that Gandalf was a Marine.

God has a hard-on for Marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls!

Sounds like the cure is worse than the disease considering that's what killed him. Way to go modern technology.
 
2012-05-03 11:49:57 PM  
It takes a strong kid to make it through what he made it through. It takes a strong person to stand by a dying child. I'm grateful for anyone and everyone who goes out of their way to ease the pain of a dying child and his/her family. It really does make a difference.

2012-05-03 11:54:51 PM  
Maybe it's because a colleague of mine just lost another one of his kids (8 month'old and 5 yr old, respectively) to some unfixable blood disorder, and I was in the military at one time, the image of a marine standing guard outside the room of a little kid stricken by a disease modern science can't grapple..... I'm reduced to tears......

Cute. Glad the corps is capable of doing _something_ other than embarrassing the nation on the international stage, even if it doesn't actually help.
