Lee Rigby


Lee Rigby, 25, a military recruiter in London, was killed in London's Woolrich area on Wednesday, May 22. Rigby played in the military's Corps of Drums and was a veteran of the conflict in Afghanistan, having served as a machine gunner. The father of a 2-year-old boy, he was described as "always smiling."

The attack on Rigby is presumed to have been because he was a veteran, motivated by ongoing tensions regarding the conflict in Afghanistan. Two suspects are in custody after an on-camera confession, while millions across the U.K. are shocked and saddened by the brutal attack.

Not sure what to say?

I don't know if my message got through or not - my computer is acting up. My heart aches for the Rigby family, especially because my Rigby family came from England in the 1830s from Manchester area.

You committed your life to your country in a way many of of us do not have the courage to do. The circumstances of your death are so inhumane it would be hard to believe possible in war let alone when you where at home. Our gratitude for your service to this country are greater than words could express.
