The Ultimate Sacrifice
It's CNN, in particular, who captured my attention recently, with a new interactive online feature, Home and Away. Designed in a year-long partnership with Stamen Design and launched for Memorial Day this year, the site tracks service members' hometowns against a map of where they died in Afghanistan. The feature also highlights memories of the fallen by friends and families.
I just caught a mention of it on CNN yesterday. As the anchor showed the maps and told stories of young men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, I got quite emotional.
This Independence Day, let's remember the brave men and women who are risking it all to protect us.
