even if you have interesting opinions, try to put yourself in those people's shoes for 1 minute and imagine the situation where it is your kid, your brother...I can only understand them and admire what they do. besides, if their son has any echo of what is going on outside, maybe he can find some relief in hearing his family is not giving up on him. It is sad for all those families whose relatives are in similar situations. war stinks from one end to another...
