Time punishes war. The war in Iraq is no exception; as each moment passes, public resolve, politics and passion erode its mission.

Collectively, many Americans tend to remember the mistakes and politics that led us there, rather than the faces of the men and women who serve and defend us.

Seven months ago, Lizzie Palmer, a young lady from Columbus, Ohio, barely over the threshold of childhood, felt compelled to do her part to remind people of those faces.

The result is a stunning video that was showcased on Chris Wallace's Fox News Sunday last week.

In the video, entitled "Remember Me," Palmer mixed thought-provoking yet simple text with haunting music and tender images of our troops smiling, hugging, loving, dying. From a husband's photo of himself lying on the ground surrounded by a heart made of rocks, to a man crippled with anguish kneeling beside the open coffin of a fallen soldier, Palmer takes you on a journey that stops you in your tracks.

"I felt like there needed to be more support for our troops," said Palmer, who is all of 15 years old. "This video was my contribution."

Palmer first posted the video on YouTube at the end of November 2006. For a couple of months it was like any other video, only tracking a handful of viewers. Then, two months ago, it snowballed.

I have been anti war since before Bush was in office. I knew he would find a way to fail at even such a simple thing as war. And he did.

Then what's the point of posting it on a public message board?
