Many of us will remember forever Karen Silkwood, who bravely exposed abuses in the nuclear power industry.

We will also remember Tami Silicio, whose photograph showed the American public the reality of the war in Iraq, the harsh reality of our soldiers coming home in flag-draped coffins.

Our soldiers deserve the respect and honor of a nation knowing of their sacrifice, not a silent coming home in the dark of night and a blackout of the media.

Karen Silkwood lost her life for her audacity. So far, Tami Silicio has only lost her job. She has my respect and thanks.
