In the United States Memorial Day is a day set aside to honor those who have fallen in battle. The below is a photo mosaic of President Bush's face, formed with the images of fallen American soldiers.
The artist had this to say about his Mosaic.
This paragraph is particularly noteworthy:
I'd also like to point out that 'War President' is an image. It is not a textual statement or rhetorical argument. An image is like an empty room and any message that one reads in that room necessarily came in the baggage one carried when one walked in the door.
"War President" Created by the American Leftist

I served in the US Navy for 22 years. During this time I have lost hundreds of crewmates in various accidents and attacks and this was in "peace" not war. These proud Americans served their country knowing that in peace or war they were a target and that there is danger in the very nature of their jobs.
I salute these valiant fallen, young men and women of courage.
I also salute those who raise their voice in opposition to this war. I may not agree with them but I did serve to ensure America remained free and that we all have the right to speak freely.
Years from now when Iraq is secure in it's own freedom, this mosaic may indeed find it's way to a yet to be created museum in Baghdad as a tribute to those freedom fighters who fought and died so the Iraqi people could be free.
It appears that we often forget one small truth, without which we would still be British, Freedom is never free.
