I'm surprised to have to go into this with you of all people. The good man was killed during a bombardment...he was not martyred. Stop praying for pity...or aggrandizing simple and tragic murder victims...it get's us nowhere...makes us look foolish...and we have enough of that going around. Try a dictionary...it explains clearly what a martyr is...and the last definition, which fits us best of all, is nothing to brag about...it says people who use the trerm martyr indiscriminately are trying to make people feel sorry for them...enough of that.
