It finally occurred to someone in the media to give some recognition, an identity beyond the ugly number 16, to the innocent people who were brutally murdered (and some who were wounded) in Kandahar (Afghanistan) on Sunday, March 11, 2012 by Sergeant Robert Bales of Washington State. Crazily enough, we can tell you what his wife blogs about (seriously?!) or what his and his wife's favorite vacation spot was (what the hell?), but no one has bothered to ask about the innocents murdered. The white westerners will always bear more importance, more interest than us unimportant little souls from the east.
Here are their names. God grant them the peace they never saw their lives on earth, aameen.
