  • those lost in Iraq/Afgahnistan

    I don't want to start a pollitical thread here but with this week the hundreth british soldier to die and over two thousand two hundred of our dear American Brothers and sisters that we love, young lives lost. Perhaps you would save a few moments for prayer or thought this weekend for those souls and the families still in pain.This is not a thread about rights and wrongs of the war please respect that just asking to remember that there but for the grace of God go we and remember their pain and loss.I feel this very bad at the moment Alistair

    Well said. As military retiree, American and transplanted Welshman, I agree on all counts. I hope their families and their soul can find peace and comfort in the words of
    Suo Gan, they hav always brought tranquility to me in times of dispair.
    Non, je ne regrette rien.

      I pray for them daily-

      "It's the Soldier, not the reporter,

      who has given us freedom of the press.

      It's the Soldier, not the poet,

      who has given us freedom of speech.

      It's the Soldier, not the campus organizer,

      who has given us freedom to demonstrate.

      It's the Soldier, not the lawyer,

      who has given us the right to a fair trail.

      And it's the Soldier who salutes the flag,

      who serves the flag,

      whose coffin is draped in the flag,

      that allows the protester to burn the flag"

      I just need one more tool,just one!

        This day hath made
        Much work for tears in many an English mother,
        Whose sons lie scatter'd on the bleeding ground;
        Many a widow's husband groveling lies,
        Coldly embracing the discolor'd earth

        Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there no sweeter words than "I told you so."

          Don't forget the 250,000 Iraqies or the 75,000 Afgahnistans either. They also fought and died for their freedom. We fight to protect ours but the mission is the same.

          We lose 2-4 a day. They lose 200-400 a day. The news broadcasts seldom mention the strugle of the "real" people of Iraq and their quest for freedom.

            And don't forget those kids gunned down at Kent State;
            they died for our freedoms, too. As did the wobblies...

              It is my wish also that we continue praying daily (hourly in some of our cases) for our Soldiers fighting on foreign soil. May GOD Bless them and keep them safe and send them home soon to be with there families.
