WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush tempered lighthearted remarks to a gathering of journalists Saturday with a declaration that the nation is in a ``period of testing and sacrifice'' spearheaded by a ``new generation of Americans as brave and decent as any before it.'' ``As I speak, men and women in uniform are taking great risks and so are many journalists are being faithful to their own sense of duty,'' the president told the 90th annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Referring to upcoming events honoring the World War II generation, he said those warriors can be certain ``that when they are gone we will still have their kind wearing the uniform of the United States of America.'' He said the death last month of former professional football player Pat Tillman ``brought home the sorrow that comes with every loss and reminds us of the character of the men and women who serve on our behalf.'' The president said Tillman ``was modest because he knew there were many like him making their own sacrifices.'' ``They fill the ranks of the armed forces,'' he continued. ``Everyday somewhere they do brave and good things without notice. Their courage is usually seen only by their comrades, by those who long to be free and by the enemy. They are willing to give up their lives and when one is lost a whole world of hopes and possibilities is lost with them. This evening we think of the families who grieve and the families that wait on a loved one's safe return.''

Do you think this would be the response if they had been doctored? Do you think the offenders would have been suspended if these had been doctored? Would Bush have apologized if these had been doctored? USE your brain that God gave you.
