4,000 Gone

Kind of a big number. But kind of an abstract number. 4,000 military men and women have lost their lives in Iraq, since the war began in 2003.

During the last five years, an average of 800 people per year were killed.

During the last five years, an average of 67 people were killed every month in Iraq.

During the last five years an average of 15 people lost their lives every week.

During the last five years an average of two people per day were killed in Iraq.

And that's not counting the wounded, or the nearly dead.

May they rest in peace.
