photos an outrage

I had tears in my eyes as I read the story of Lance Cpl. Joshua Bernard.

It brought back memories of a time so long ago when I held the hand of a young Marine who died as we were being medevaced in Vietnam on Sept. 16, 1968. I will never forget the look in his eyes or his last words.

There has been much controversy about Associated Press photographs documenting Lance Cpl. BernardAEs death. Shame on them! The Associated Press has stooped to a new low. No parent should ever have to learn of or see the death of a child on the evening news. It is an outrage.

Lance Cpl. Bernard is a true American hero in every sense of the word. He died serving his country and that is all I need to know. I donAEt need to see photographs of his death on the news or read his last words in a newspaper.

Some things are still sacred. Semper Fidelis.

Recently readers Ruth Stevig (Aug. 16) and Daniel W. Anderson (Sept. 10) have suggested this same idea, and mentioned that itAEs being used in Vancouver Island, Canada.

Having a green light flash shortly before it turns yellow is a simple, yet potentially lifesaving idea that all drivers would appreciate. …
