Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“While each door is different, the scenes inside are almost always the same. ‘The curtains pull away. They come to the door. And they know. They always know,’ Major Beck said. ‘You can almost see the blood run out of their body and their heart hit the floor. It’s not the blood as much as their soul. Something sinks. I’ve never see that except when someone dies. And I’ve seen a lot of death. They’re falling –either literally or figuratively –and you have to catch them. In this business I can’t save his life. All I can do is catch the family while they’re falling.'”

–From Jim Sheeler’s “Final Salute” (2008).
