Capt. Nichola Goddard.

Rest in Peace.

A female soldier was killed in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, making her the first Canadian woman to die in combat since the Second World War.

Let's make sure her death was not in vain. An early retreat from Afghanistan would embolden the very same bastards that took her life. This must not be allowed to occur.
Captain Goddard believed in the mission. She knew the seriousness of the mission, and the risks involved. And she gave her life for it.

Our nation is better because of men and women like her. And Afghanistan is a freer nation because of her sacrifice.

"The government of Afghanistan and the Afghan national security forces have had a good successful day. There was significant Taliban casualties both killed and captured.
"Unfortunately, the cost today was the life of Nichola.

If there is any eternal justice in this universe, then the last thing the terrorist sandnits saw before entering everlasting hell was the sight of Capt. Goddard being lifted up and exalted into her heavenly home.

R.I.P. Captain Goddard. You're my hero.
