The Last Word

I got chills when I read this blog post today.

It's the last blog post ever from a soldier named Andrew Olmsted, a blogger for the Rocky Mountain News, who died in Iraq. He wrote his "last entry" to be posted in the event of his demise. And die he did. In the war.

According to this NY Times article he died January 3 in Sadiyah from small arms fire from insurgents.

What a strange, sad, yet oddly uplifting thing it is to read someone's final words.
