No one should have to die to defend their right to live.  Unfortunately, that's not how the world works.  No one in the history of the world has ever lived freely without someone else's sacrifice.

Typically, the ones dying are too young to have experienced much of life.  Given a responsibility to stand in front of the ones they love, expecting nothing in return but their loved one's safety, they were killed.  Now, many are the forgotten uncles or distant relatives buried in some mass or unmarked grave near a battlefield.
