What if you could blog from the dead, what would you say?
Well a soldier who was stationed in Iraq did just that. Major Andrew OImstead blogged from his perch as a soldier in the Iraq War. Most postings were typical: outling the boring and terrifying moments of modern day soldiering in a war zone.
However Andrew also wrote an entry that was to be put on his blog if he was killed in Iraq. Sadly that day came last week.
His post is a mixture of humor, sadness, regret, and no apologies. He takes an interesting perspective. He knows that the only way we are reading his words is because he is dead. Of course there is gallows humor but there is also perspective. It's a provacative and thoughtful post and I encourage you all to read it.
