Most men live mediocre lives of "quiet desperation," toiling at boring, mundane jobs, and die meaningless deaths, old and tired, bodies broken and used up...Tillman was lucky. He lived an exciting life of sports achievement, knew true love and was married, then took the opportunity to honorably serve his country. While others clucked their tongues around the office water cooler and droned on about topics of the day, he dynamically seized control of his life, went to where real life was happening, and dove in to the hilt. To die while returning fire upon the enemies of your country is the greatest honor of all...the guy is a hero, but probably no more than any other of the 700 American guys who paid the price...What sets him apart from the others is the perception, real or not, that he gave up more (riches, the "good life")than other soldiers who left their lives to go off and fight for freedom. This may be so....But they all are just as brave, and so they should be as earnestly honored by us...
