Walking on the Graves of Good Men

Though some believe it superstitious, most Southerners consider it crass; the ultimate display of disrespect, to walk across a grave.

When Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a Democrat of Cleveland issued the following statement to reporters at the conclusion of a prayer vigil for Ohio Marines killed in Iraq last week,

"The memorial service is so important to the families of the Marines. I just wish we could do more. They can use our prayers, but they can also use our voices to speak out against this war in Iraq."

she not only walked, she skipped and danced a little ditty across the graves of good men.

There is no justification for blatantly defiling the memories of honor, commitment and courage of volunteers who have sacrificed their lives.
