It has come to my attention that a war protest is in the works to be held during the funeral service for Staff Sergeant Edward Karolasz.

This is an open letter to those that would participate in such an activity.

For those that intend to disrupt this solumn occasion by protesting the war I have only this to say:

Edward did not start this war. He merely served as called to do. Weather you support the war or not, his death is a tragedy regardless.

The intent of the human chain being organized along Kearny Avenue is to Honor one of Kearny's youths who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to his country.

The family surely grieves the loss of a son and brother. Your intended actions on this day will only succeed in making what is already a difficult time for family and friends more tragic by turning what is intended to honor Edward and show support for the family into a circus that will serve no political gain.

Your protest on this date will not end the war, nor will it prevent further deaths of our soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Let Edward and his family spend their last moments together without incident as they escourt this brave youth to his final resting place.

Henry J. Magee
