A Blog :: A Portrait

A good blog to the world is almost like a portrait in Hogwart's headmaster office to Harry Potter. It's the encapsulation of one's character - it's not the real I; but it's I.

I was especially overwhelmed by what a blog could mean to the rest of the world, when I read the last blog post by a US Marine who died in a war. That particular post was submitted AFTER he died. Very touching and thought-provoking.

This piece of news is making headlines in the news, especially CNN . CNN even shows the ceremony whereby Bush awarded a medal of honor to the soldier's parents. It was really a sad moment for both of them.

Ahh! Yeah definitely saddening.

Bush shouldn't take advantage of his death in order to promote "patriotism", if that's the ulterior motive behind this medal award ceremony.
