This is so sad. I was looking through pictures on the MSNBC photoblog (I do this all the time; they have some really amazing pics on there) and stumbled upon this one:

The caption: "Mary McHugh mourns her dead fiance Sgt. James Regan at "Section 60" of the Arlington National Cemetery May 27, 2007. Regan, an American Special Forces soldier, was killed by an IED explosion in Iraq in February of this year, and this was the first time McHugh had visited the grave since the funeral."

Rick Shulman, MSBNC associate multimedia editor, says...

There are hundreds of photos shot every Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery, but few have the emotional power and the simplicity of this one. Do you think this picture appropriately honors our war dead? Or does it say something else?
