OTTAWA — Moved by the steady stream of casualties returning from the
battlefields of Afghanistan, a small group of Canadian veterans is
urging the Conservative government to formally recognize wounded
soldiers with a medal.

Why is it that something so simple as a gesture of appreciation for one being injured while in the service of our country, seems so difficult for politicians to see the merit in?

Mildly competitive… maybe a small bit head strong… sometimes has an opinion… and occasionally has a requirement to be right (currently averaging 99.9% of the time). But my high level of sensitivity and empathy makes up for any of my minor faults :-)
