Thread Name: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Soldier (Harvey Andrews)
Eye witness accounts were clear that the soldier could have saved himself, but chose instead to usher the people out first.
When the explosion came, his body was between the bomb and the people.
To me there was nobility in his act, but none at all in the moron who threw the bomb into that room of people, and then ran away to save his own worthless life.
To me the soldier was the better man.
Tell us why you disagree.

(If the bomber is/was a friend of yours, no offence to you.)
