Support our troops; they fight for you
As our nation seemingly draws closer to a military action with Iraq, we're reminded that "united we stand" should remain more than a mere motto.
As a mother of six incredible children, I'm terrified for their future. I'm willing to bet the same sentiment prevailed before our active involvement in World War II as well. Pearl Harbor ended that fence-riding and Sept. 11, 2001, ended it in my mind this time.
I'm not a pro-war fanatic. I favor bringing the evil forces behind Sept. 11 to justice and eliminating those who would like to continue to allow their terror to rein.
I'm not a "kill 'em all. Let God sort them out" fanatic. I'm a veteran. I served my country in uniform and stood beside other men and women who willingly sacrifice their lives for me and you.
Take a moment away from blasting our president, insulting our foreign policy and pretending terrorism will disappear if we mind our own business, and remember there are men and women fighting for you and your right to voice your opinion. Not to mention your right to live in a land free of buildings with airplanes blazing inside of them, fields with gigantic holes and a Pentagon with gaping holes in its side.
I haven't forgotten. Why have so many of you? I'll continue to pray for a peaceful resolution to this crisis; however, I will also pray for the swift resolution militarily if that is what it takes to end the rein of terrorism.
God bless America, its men and women who fight your battle daily and my president.
