Behind the Design:



"Unfortunate" is the wrong word.
For our government to say that the catastrophic events at Abbey Gate were merely "unfortunate" let's them purposely:

- Deny their role this avoidable event,
- Brush-Off their neglect & intentional lack of action, and
- Negate their betrayal of the Kabul 13 and the United States.

August 26, 2021 will forever be burned into history. A powerful reminder of what happens when a superpower...

One that prides itself on its unmatched military might and intelligence capabilities, blatantly disregards actionable intelligence.

How could the U.S. government and the U.S. military, armed with some of the world's most sophisticated intelligence networks, let over 180 innocent lives be lost?

How could the U.S. government and the U.S. military stand by as 13 of our Own Sons and Daughters of this land were mercilessly slaughtered?

It's no mere oversight, but a disrespectful failing of duty, and an insult to the ideals America claims to uphold.

Suppose we as a global community and as American citizens, do not demand answers and hold those in power accountable...

In this case, we are complicit in every tear shed, every life lost, and every ounce of grief that echos from that ill-fated day at Kabul's Abbey Gate.

It's a simple reality: In warfare lives are lost, often needlessly. Yet, every single one of those lives holds stories, dreams, families, and aspirations that were brutally cut short.

The 13 U.S. Service Members who made the ultimate sacrifice at Abbey Gate were more than just numbers on a casualty list: they were brave souls who stepped into the line of duty, fully aware of the risks, but driven by a commitment to safeguard others.

Their loss is not just a tragedy for their families, but for our entire nation, that they valiantly served.

To forget them would be an unthinkable injustice. We must ensure that their memories remain burned in our collective minds, ...

Serving as a constant reminder of the real cost of policy missteps and leadership failures, and purposeful inaction. Every moment of silence, every memorial erected, every tear shed in the memory of the Kabul 13 is a commitment that we will never let their sacrifices be in vain.

The Kabul 13 were our protectors; our heroes. And now, it's our solemn duty to be the bearers of their legacies.
