If there was a life he begged for, it was yours.
If he wept when you killed him, he wept for you.
If I would have anyone know about Tom, it would be this.
(This poem was made by Beth Pyles, one of the Christian Peacemaker Team in
Iraq, who saw Tom's body (accompanied by the body of a young Iraqi who also died in detention) off from Anaconda Air Base in Balad, Iraq).
