25. I can't imagine what his parents are going through right now.
To think they raised an American hero, supported his decision to join the military and only to outlive their precious boy. There are no words to describe the cruel hypocrisy of the GOP. To attack Muslim and Arab-Americans (sadly, some don't realize the two aren't mutually exclusive) through Obama, to show how 'different' he is, shows an anti-American spirit that courses through the Republican Party.

I'm around Cpl. Khan's age and it tears me up inside that we are sending soldiers even YOUNGER to go and die in the Middle East. When will this stop? When will we have to stop telling mothers and fathers that they have to bury their children?
