Did Time Magazine Go Too Far?

By Remy Benoit

I received an e-mail this morning about Time replacing the American flag with a tree in the famous flag raising picture at Iwo Jima. Many are expressing outrage at this. At Time Cover Riles Iwo Jima Veterans.

While care of the planet that sustains us a high priority, there are some things, sacrifices that are sacred. On of my children's great uncles served at Iwo. He has since passed on, but I am sure that the shrapnel he carried in his head from there would have set his head to aching seeing this. Shame on you Time. Perhaps the people at Time should read more history.
