A love story in 22 pictures...

I agree with you regarding the poems. But what they have done and the pictures say so much more and do it so much better.
It's the same kind of sentiment as there used to be at Wooton Basset before it turned into a media grief whore fest.

Agreed, but my comment is still valid.

At least we Brits do things with dignity.
Those photos are exceptionally dignified and highlights the kind of strength, determination and dedication that this couple display irrespective of their nationally. And good for the USA that they can focus on such a positive aspect of a truly devastating and traumatic event.

I was exceptionally impressed by the attitude to wounded veterans in the US when I had the privilege of attending one of their Wounded Warrior events in Colorado.

When you speak of our countries dignified way of doing things I suspect you don't know of stories such as a triple amputee (from my former regiment) being spat on at a supermarket whilst in a wheelchair or another, double amputee being so badly jostled by a gang in the street that he was knocked from his chair?

Dignity? Brits? Don't make me piss myself laughing.

You missed my meaning.

A fantastic story as I said. What they have achieved is remarkable.

The dignity comment was made about the victims.
