His worth hath no end

If you have tears to shed... I had.

Christopher Hitchens writes about a young man whom his articles had helped persuade to enlist, and who was killed by an IED. It is very moving.

Mark Daily wrote this to his wife of 18 months.

One thing I have learned about myself since I've been out here is that everything I professed to you about what I want for the world and what I am willing to do to achieve it was true. …

My desire to "save the world" is really just an extension of trying to make a world fit for you.
