Greater Love

 

With all the mention today of 2,000 families mourning the loss of loved ones, I have to also think of the almost 3,000 families still mourning from 9-11. I also think of the 17 families mourning from the USS Cole.

 

I dare say there are literally thousands of families, American, European, Arab, and Asian that mourn the loss of loved ones at the hands of these terrorists.

 

These terrorists have to be stopped and this war on terror should have been started over 30 years ago, before they gained the support and power they have today. Appease them now and imagine the power they will have 10 or 20 years from now.

 

At the same time as I shed my tears over these 2,000 I also beam with pride that this latest generation has produced such fine young men and women who willingly placed themselves in harms way for the protection and liberation of others and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Their sacrifices are not to be taken lightly or denigrated but deserve to be held up to the entire world as amongst the finest people this country has ever produced.

 

John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    Beautifully said. It seems to me the media has done one horrific job of magnifying the worst of everything regarding Iraq and the War On Terror. We must assert ourselves and encourage our troops who are selflessly fighting for us to remain free and our streets to remain terror free. I have no sympathy for those that criticize this war and our troops. I loathe those who refer to conservatives as war mongers. If it were not for this administrations determination to fight the good fight against terrorism I shudder to think what our streets might look like today. Perhaps thinking of Israel would give us a clue.Thank God for America and our loyal troops that sacrifice for our Nation and us people so that we can continue to live in the style we have grown accustomed to. Those who think otherwise, those who think this means little, and we should pull our troops out and cower down to terrorism are no better than terrorists themselves.I am proud to be an American!Doll
