Nick was my age (26; I’m 27), and he grew up in the same area (West Chester; I grew up in Downingtown, about five minutes away). After I heard about his death I was stunned and saddened, thinking about how terrible it must have been for the Bergs to have their son stolen from them. Seeing the media descend upon West Chester, I felt even worse for them for having to deal with their grief upon the public stage.
I don’t want to comment on U.S. policy in Iraq or on the War on Terror because I want A Citizen’s Blog to be a refuge from the sea of insanity that seems to be gripping the world: I just want everyone to keep the Bergs in their prayers this week. God bless.
