DEC 25TH,2005 I am very moved by the photo you sent.What a supreme sacrifice these people have made for years.I think we have misjudged President Bush. He is a very brave and strong man.I believe that there was weapons of mass destruction before we went to Iraq but they had more than enough time to move them out when our investigative team went over for 8 months before we deployed troops. How easy we are deceived. God bless these people and comfort them in this lost.I know many prayers are going up for them and like the president says God bless America.

As the wife of a Retired AF Man, I thank GOD for all our BRAVE MEN & WOMEN, that they are keeping the war away from AMERICA, & WE do not have to see this sceen on our streets!! This war was not caused by PRESIDENT BUSH, it was caused by TERRORIST on 9/11, WE should ALL Thank GOD for our PRESIDENT BUSH & PRAY for PEACE!! Our Soldiers are so BRAVE, & at the sametime, so caring, GOD BLESS THEM!!!
Let's hope no more innocent men, women ,and children die!!!!!!!!!!!!
God bless our fighting men. They are no different than the ones who saved Europe from another dictator - HJitler. Childdren get hurt and even killed usually because some one does not really care. Our guy do and they try tdo help whenever they can. These y oug men that we sent are the finest. They voluntered because they thought they could do some good... AND THEY HAVE. We are very proud of these men and they should be given skpecial kudos fdodr doing what they do so well. Has anyone thought of what would it be like if we had not gone in there - Lets think about didt. Saddam would be murdering more people, instead he is modeling underware. And now the liberals want to castigate us fodr allowing these pictures. Where is their sense of balance. The French and Germans would continue to be reaping parofits from oil, million of Iragis would be fearing murder, rakpe and torture. Udo and his brother would still be murdering and raping. And who knows maybe we would have lost a few more buildings in New York as after all the fighting would be here and not there. God bless America and her fidgdhting men.

My heart got broken on the sight of the picture and daily news from iraq war. I am a young mothere of small children. I pains so much to me to see small and innocent children suffer as a result of war caused by people who are also parents. Let the whole world pray that all thses wars come to an end. I pray that in Kenya we remain peaceful since all our neighbouring courtries and suffering as a result of war. Women and children suffer most when such wars break. Let us all mothers accrose the world unit and ask for God's Grace to stop anything that can cause innoncent children suffer. When especially women and children suffer globally, it pains the mothers for even the solders are our children and husbands. Lets us as mothers cry to the lord to touch even the terrorists to stop and confess for all they they have caused the world at large
The picture that you show was shown here in Australia. Like so many people have commented on your pages, I can't understand how these people can hurt and kill their own brothers and sister in the name of religion. Australia has just sent another 400 soldiers to Iraq, and while we have not sustained the number of casaulties and deaths that the Americans have, our hearts are in our mouths when we hear another bomb has gone off or more defence force personnel have died. As the wife of a soldier, my blood runs cold when I hear some of the tales of what is happening. I pray that God will end this conflict ASAP, so that defence personnel can return home to their families and the Iraqi people can live in peace and harmony without the fear of not knowing if their loved ones are going to return home each day.
The picture is very heart breaking. I think it is important that everyone knows in war nothing is fair nor right. But if you read your Bible you know that the end times are close at hand. God is in control of everything. The only thing that I could think of with the death of the people is that they won't suffer anymore. We are fortunate in the USA to be safe and away from combat BUT other countries are not as fortunate as us. It breaks my heart to see or even hear about children dying because I think of my own and how it would effect me. Hopefully people will turn their lives over to Christ because in the end you either have eternally life or eternal hell...
I'm in the united states Army, just coming out of basic training. I'm hurt by the things that I hear and see coming from Iraq. Its hard to get past. I know my time is coming up and I'm ready to do anything and everything I can, as a U.S. Infantryman, to help. Things like this article make me want to fight more than ever. Thank you for sharing. Even though it's sad, it agers me just as bad. Thank you. Pvt. Kenneth T. Douthit
If this picture doesn't touch your Heart, you don't have one...I want to thank God for this Soldier that picked up this Little Angel in his arm's to try to get her some help to live, I'm so sorry she didn't , but one thing for sure...this little Angel is in Gods arms now & I don't know of a saver place she could be..Not only this Soldier that I thank so much, but each & everyone of our Dear Men & Women over there in that Hot Sand that's trying there best to stop this killing of these helpless children...May God Bless & keep our Blave Military safe until each & everyone of those low down Heartless cowards are all burning in Hell where they all belong, so our dedicated Soldiers can come home to all their love ones..We love each & everyone of them. B.L.S,JR. VA.
I really appreciate what this Mother wrote please write me if you want my son is in Iraq and I am doing this all alone I just want to be able to share with someone who is or has gone through the same thing, my son also tells me to ignore the news please write me email@example.com (Date: 07 May 2005 Time: 10:27:05 Comments I am a Mom whose Son just came back from Iraq. I love my Son and support him, but I'm not for war. While he was away I prayed a lot, and was glued to the TV. It took over my life, and I thank God I didn't get and ulcer. One day my Son called me and I could hear bombing in the back ground. As a Mom I felt helpless. But he was the parent for me that day/his evening. He said to me. "Don't watch the news, I'll give you the news from here." The "news" was. "Hi Mom. I'm fine, things are good here. How's everyone? Tell them "hi" for me, and that I love them. Well, gotta get back to work. I Love You!" Those were the news reports I got from him all the time he was there, and they were the best news reports I could ever get. I stopped watching TV and was content with just those few words. I put his care in Gods hands. Now that he's back I still get emotional, and my heart aches when I read and see what is going on around the world. As a missionary, I pray for all Gods people especially all who have lost their loved ones Americans and Iraqi. May our Lord Jesus and His Blessed Mother Mary protect all her children. June)
My Comment on this is That The Actions of The Insurgents won't Win Them Friends at All. My Heart Goes out the Family Who Lost This Child Through No Fault of it's own Attacking Security Forces is One Thing But Killing Innocent People is Not On. I Lift My thoughts to those who were Willing To Accept Help From the Members of The U S Armed Forces with open Arms. Gods Bleesings to Those Who are Trying to Help The Iraqi People in any Way Possible to Attain Freedom. Gregson C Meston. Australia
This story touched me the very first time I saw it. There are so much misery in this world and here our brave men and women are sacraficing their lives for each and everyone of us. I am so sick and tired of hearing about what "Bush" has done. I sincerely think God has put him in this job and I admire the job He (our President has done) This man has done a fantastic service to provide freedom to all. He did not start this terrorist movement; it has been there for many, many years. Now, I am thankfull to all our fighting men in women. They have given up so much for us.Also, I thank their familes back here at home as I can just imagine what they are going through; please respect all of them. These liberals are not just putting our president down, they are also insulting our service men/women and their families. This is not a Republican or Democrat war, it is freedom at stake for all.I shed tears for each one that dies over there, not forgetting our men/women that are handicapped for life and then we walk around griping all the time. Thank these veterans and show respect to them, they have earned it. I bet our president "Bush" sheds just as many tears as he is a very compassionate man. My heart goes out to him as well, as he is a decent and honest man. Stop blaming him for all the evils of this world. Thank God he is the President as we do not know what would have happened if someone else was in his place. The war would probably have been over here. Search your souls, the ones that are constantly complaining; Do we not have alot of killings going on right here in our country, why dont you people that complains about the war start doing something about that.Just this week two little girls, 8 & 9 years old was murdered. Please respect the families of our fighting men/women and our President. Stop being such a bunch of hate mongers then pretend that you dont like war (fighting etc.) Thank you all of our troops, your families, our president. I appreciate all of your sacrafices. May God Bless you all and keep you under HIS Protection and Loving Care. N. Carver God Bless USA
It is so sad that God put us on this wonderful Earth........and because of greed, hate and lack of Love for other human beings the little children of the world suffer before they even know whats going on.........this a very sad situation for all LP.
What a sad commentary that there are people in this world who take the lives of the innocent without a thought. Thank God there are compassionate people such as this soldier who are willing to stop what they are doing, many times putting themselves in harms way, to comfort another human being. I too had a son in the Middle East for fifteen months. He returned safely home to his family a few months ago. In asking him if he thought that America should be engaged in this war, he answered that "it is a noble cause and one that he strongly believes in". There are so many good things that are happening for the people there. However, we don't always get the news that expresses these things. We seem to get only the bad things. God bless those who are willing to give of themselves for their fellow-man. We appreciate so much the sacrifice that they are giving. Mother of a soldier who has and is still serving, North Carolina
I had been afraid of Saddam in the gulf war,thought we should have gotten him then, but now,those people deserve to live free, with schooling,medical treatment, but most of all they need to know we really care and i do, my youngest son is over there,he has three daughters and a son, he said the situation that causes him so much pain is to see the innocent children being hurt and killed by people who think glory is dying and taking a humongus amount of people with them, I pray daily for the Iraqie people to get stronger and more couragious,determined everyday, also I Pray the insurgents will grow weary and tired and stop and think ,Hey i want a wife,children, a life, I don't want to die or take anyone with me, that is my daily,nightly prayer,will you say the prayer also?, thank You .God Bless the people of Iraq and all our people over there.Linda Stephens,New Mexico

My husband is retired National Guard. I have always been so proud of our men that put themselves in harms way to help other countries. The 1107th (my husbands group)returned from Kuwait in December last year after serving a year. Some of the group spent time in Iraq and in other areas around Kuwait. We were so proud and sad at the same time when they were deployed and so grateful and proud when they returned. We had 230 go and return with no loss of lives. I do feel, if we were not over there. the fighting would be on our soil. The people that are giving the problems over there are not doing it just because we are there. They would be hunting ways to bring down more planes and buildings here and the car bombing would be here rather then in Iraq.
We all need to pray that God himself will put an end to this war. It seems to be something man can't conquer.
I am sorry for the death of ALL INNOCENT IRAQI'S, I am however, sure that if no American would AGREED to go to Iraq and kill, these children would still be alive as the insurgents would have no enemy target. I do not think any soldier who signs up to kill anyone has the right to be felt sorry for, IF NOONE AGREES TO KILL NO ONE WILL BE KILLED. When you sign up for the U.S. military you are not fooled to believe you will never have to kill someone. You are brainwashed to believe in the propaganda our government fills you with. It starts with hate and fear and continues with prejudice. No soldier is INNOCENT of the death of those they kill. The suicide bombers are wrong, they are murderers. But the soldier's who have killed are wrong too. If no one fights no one dies!
Articles like this tear me up emotionally but I know that this sort of thing is going on all the time over there in Iraq and in other parts of the middle East. It doesn't make sense to me to attack small children in the name of a Holy War, their own people's children too. I know they don't value life as we do, but I am glad some of our fighting men and women are to give aid when and where they can. GOD BLESS OUR SOLDIERS AND FIGHTING PERSONEL AND KEEP THEM SAFE!
Thanks from a Disabled Combat Veteren from a war 50 years ago in Korea. To all of our Service Men and Women and thier Famlies who's loved ones are fighting all around the world this day in order to in order to keep our country free and safe. May God bless them always, no mater where they are. Bill Gese
IT IS MOTHER'S DAY. I DECIDED TO GO ONTO YOUR WEBSITE. I DECIDED TO READ THIS OUTSTANDING AND HEART WRENCHING ARTICLE. WHEN YOU FEEL THE WORLD IS DOWN ON YOU AND YOU READ SOMETHING LIKE THIS........YOUR OUTLOOK CHANGES......GOD BLESS THESE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE DOING WHAT THEY BELIEVE IS RIGHT - WHETHER WE DO OR NOT. THEY ARE GIVING THEIR LIVES EVERYDAY TO MAKE PEOPLE FREE. SO THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THIS MOVING ARTICLE......MAY ALL AMERICANS READ IT AND LET THEM DWELL ON IT AND THEN GET ON THEIR KNEES AND GIVE THANKS TO OUR GOD ALMIGHTY FOR ALL HIS BLESSING TO ALL OF US IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES WE GET TO ENJOY EACH AND EVERY DAY.....THANK YOU SO MUCH. PATRICIA JORDAN CONNECTICUT
It is very sad to see grown people and chrildens loosing their lives over George Bushes OIl
I thank the Lord God for all our armed forces on land, air and sea. For all the ones that are standing by the USA and fighting along side our men and women to keep our country free. I donít like the war any more than any one else but if it isnít on someone elseís land than it will be on ours. It is hard enough to send our loved ones over to Iraq or other countries but I donít want our children here to have to go through what those pour child are going through there. God bless and keep all the men and women that are severing to keep America free and their counties also. God be with and protect them all. Be with all the families that have lost loved ones over there and give them peace. Pamela WA USA
Thank you for sending this dreadful, but realistic photo. We here in Australia are affected similarly to our good friends in the U.S. I don't fully understand what is going on, but I hope and pray that it would end.
I am so schocked at the people in the "comments" that Really think Iraq was in any way a threat to us!(USA) Do they think Iraq was going to fly over here and attack us with their Air Force? THEY have NO Air Force/Army/Navy-- These poor people had been beat to pices in the first Gluf War.. They have been starved by the awful food embargo we had on them for years. THESE folks were harmless.!!! And as far as S/H The Iraq people would have found a way to take him out if they had any love of self and family. NO way are any starving bunch of folfs going to "COME OVER HERE" and fight any war here on American soil!! THEY WOULD BE FACEING THE best armed fighting-kllling army this earth has ever Known---THE AMERICAN HUNTERS!! I am sure they had rather face our soulders than the fully equiped, serious deer hunters from Alabama/ south. Wonderful site- GOD BLESS AMERICA and bring em on' JOBOB in AL
How real the picture is of war. My Uncle was a prisoner of war in Austria during WWII. For many years he could not and would not talk about it. My brother fought in the Korean War. Innocent children and adults are always being injured or killed. I hope everyone understands this could very easily be happening in the USA. It already has but people still do not want to call 911 or the Oklahoma bombing a war. The only way to keep the terrorists from doing more damage here is just what we did, we took it to their backyard. But they are still coming into our country. Too often many pay for freedom with their lives so others may enjoy the fruit of their sacrifice. May GOD watch over all of the coalition forces, and the Iraqi people,for He loves them all. From the wife of a former Airman and mother of a former Marine. In God We Trust!
Hello to all who read this: I have had 6 family members who died in the wars. Does not matter what war, all the wars are terrible. Then the bombing in Oklahoma City. My daughter had just left the Murrah Building 5 minutes before the bomb went off. God was with her that day. I cannot understand the horror the people go through in their minds who want to destroy life. The picture of the fireman holding the little tiny one from the OKC bombing, then this picture of a soldier holding a tiny child. My gosh, when will it ever end. People wonder why children grow up trying to defend themselves. Wrong is wrong and I wish there were a solution to this. We are to love and guide our children, not teach or show them how to destroy. And especially not to destroy our own children. Oh mercy I'm just rattling on but I am so upset. Thank you everyone who pray for OUR TROOPS, OUR CHILDREN and OUR AMERICA!!!Although we do not agree with some of our heads of state, we must still provide prayer for all. Thank you for giving me a chance to let off some steam. Beverly
Thank you so much for sharing this story, and very poignant photo with us! We believe in this effort! We believe in our president's desire to liberate the Iraqi people, for THEIR sake! And we believe in our military, here and there! But more than that, we pray daily for all of them--the president, the military people and the Iraqi's. May God hold them all in the hollow of his hand, bring healing to their land, and true peace and freedom... Mary & Charlie Dufner ]Hendersonville NC

I HAVE A SON IN THE AIR FORCE GUARDS. HE COULD BE SENT OVER THERE ANYTIME. HE SAYS HE IS WILLING TO GO AND FIGHT FOR HIS COUNTRY. THIS IS THE KEY WORD. WE DO NOT WANT WAR HERE ON OUR SOIL. I WISH THERE WAS NEVER A WAR AGAIN ANY WHERE BUT AS LONG AS WE LIVE THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS. IF I LIVED OVER THERE AND SOME ONE CAME TO MY RESCUE I WOULD BE VERY GREATFUL. WE IN THE USA ARE A VERY SPOILED PEOPLE. I KNOW WE HAVE NO IDEAL HOW ROUGH THOSE PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT. MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE CHILDREN AND THE SOILDERS. I THINK WE SHOULD ALL KNOW AND SEE WHAT GOES ON OVER THERE AND KEEP THEM IN OUR PRAYERS. I DON'T TRUST THE NEWS ANYMORE SINCE ONE REPORTER WAS PUTTING OUR SOLDERS DOWN. LET OUR SOLDERS KNOW YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING. BUY THEM A MEAL. SHAKE THEIR HAND AND SAY THINK YOU. DO OR SAY SOMETHING NICE TO THEM.

WHEN WE ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE WON'T BE SEEING PICTURES LIKE THIS AND STORIES TO MATCH THIS ONE. BUT, WHEN WILL WE ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE??? THAT WILL ONLY HAPPEN WHEN WE ALL HAVE THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN OUR HEARTS AND SHOW IT ONE TO ANOTHER. LET'S ALL PRAY FOR OUR AMERICAN SOLDIERS WHO ARE PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE EVERY DAY TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOM AND OUR PEACE. START WITHIN YOUR OWN FAMILY AND HAVE A LOVING AND FORGIVING ATTITUDE TO THOSE WE COME IN CONTACT WITH DAILY. PRAY FOR WORLD PEACE TO OCCUR ALL OVER THE WORLD. GOD BLESS US ALL...ESPECIALLY THOSE SERVING IN FOREIGN LANDS. MAKE PEACE YOUR DAILY DESIRE!!!
God bless every service man and woman. And America should should stand and salute every one of them. They give more of themselves, their lioves and hearts, than should ever be expected from anyone. And it is all done unconditionally. This picture touches my heart more than any I have seen yet. I will pray that God will protect the tender heart of this soldier. G.P. Manistique M.I.
Thank you for sharing this picture. It reminds me of Christ's love for His children, young and old, as this soldier shows his love and sorrow for this innocent child. My heart hurts for the Iragi's and their families, my prayers and thoughts are with the Military men and all the Iraqi families daily. God Bless.
The article is so real and very touching! It is a tragedy that we have to face this cruel violence in our world we live in!GOD BLESS EVERYBODY!!!ALICE!XO
I pray for the servicemen and women not only in Iraq, but all over the world, daily. My answer to those who say bring our people home, stop the war,.... if it were our Country, would you want others to ignore our plight and leave us with no help? I do not understand a culture that believes in killing innocent children who 'happen' to be where their intended victims are.
Having served in the Australian Regular Army for 27 years, I enlisted, knowing that if I were to be sent to a theatre of war, there was every liklihood that I may not return. All servicemen realise that by serving their country in this way, they are protecting those they love from any future danger. Having said that, it sickens me when I see photographs of innocent children being indiscriminately killed, simply to satisfy the blood lust of a few terrorists! But let us all remember: it is not just American lives that are in jeopardy....there are servicemen from many countries who make up the 'coalition of the willing', so let's pray for ALL servicemen from ALL the countries participating in the fight for a country, where the majority want to live in a decent, democratic environment. Today is Mother's Day....may they all be blessed as they proudly support their children who are fighting for Democracy. Norm....'A Dinkum Aussie'!!
This is D'Orsay and I truly want to compliment you for any web site that gives praise and honor to our service men and women. I always have words I would like to say to them and you do it for me in so many ways. So I want to say thank you and pray you deep up the good work.
My first thought was the Oklahoma bombing and the firefighter carrying a child out from the wreckage! It never fails to touch your heart when it is a child - no matter where that child is in this world! My prayers to the family and the soldiers who face this each day!! A Mother, Grandmother & Great-Grandmother
This is something close to the hearts of all of us here at home. My prayers are with all of our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the parent of former Navy and Marine personnel, my heart is with each and every one of them. This was a beautiful heartfelt message to all of us of the humanitarianism of our servic people serving our country.
7 may, 2005 All war is hell, no doubt about it. I only thank God that Kerry did not win the election, as if he did maybe our troops would be home, but things would be a lot worse in Iraq and the world for that matter. this picture grabbed at my heart and brought me to tears. Those the media cals insurgents are nothing but TERERORISTS, plain and simple. They do not care about the Iraqi people, onnly their own agenda which is JIHAD against the Infidel and those who provide assistance to us. I am not pro-war, but there are times when action is needed. A Korean era VETERAN
We hope and pray that our soldiers will soon be home with their families. What can we do for those poor souls in Iraq. So many die from the hands of their own people. It breaks our hearts.
That was great and very true. I feel so sorry for our troops and the families they have left behind. I was not for this war, but, I can pray for our troops and family. Thanks for sharing this with me.
I think this war should end!!!!!! NOW
My Son James is in Iraq, everyday I hear of a bombing and my heart stops beating, I pray that the bomb was not any where near him and then when I hear the news that it is another soldier my heart stops again, I am thankfull that it wasn't my son but at the same time my heart aches for the Mother of that child, this war in Iraq makes me angry that it has to take our children away from home away from their mothers, also at the same time I am so proud of my son I know when he comes home that he served for our freedom he was a part of all that made Iraq free and has helped so many people, how can I not be proud of him and all the other soldiers over there they are always in my prays GOD BLESS THEM ALL AND GOD PLEASE BE WITH THEM PROTECT THEIR SOULS
They, the insurgents, do these attacks when there are innocent people around as a warning. Do not help or like Americans! or any other nationallity that is helping us to help those poor people have a decent life. I hope we can hold out long enough to finish our job.
I have a grandson, TJ, over in Iraq for the 3rd. time right now.. him and his wife are expecting their first child any minute now and he will miss this important event, as so many other events in his young life. This email article really hit close to home and made me cry..but thank you for sharing this true-life event. Janet Hamilton, Wisconsin
I have a Grandson in Iraq at this time, my prayers go out to all the brave men and women serving their country. How blessed the young man with the child, great will be his reward. God bless America
I am a Mom whos Son just came back from Iraq. I love my Son and support him, but I'm not for war. While he was away I prayed a lot, and was glued to the TV.

Thank you for making the decision to print this, especially the picture showing the love of the man for the tiny victim. My husband, sons and grandsons have served in the Services and many experienced the horrors of war. I thank God they have returned safely and pray the ones still protectiing our country will return also. Your site is wonderful..!!! Thank You Again and may God Bless You All. Lynn Hilborn North Carolina,
This page was very moving and I give you the praise for sending it to all of us. It takes something like this to make us realize how lucky we are to be living in America. I enjoy your pages every week. Keep up the good work. Barbara R.
Thank you so much for sharing this. Recently, my Nephew returned from Iraq. He was training for another tour in Iraq in Ft. Riley Kansas. He was killed along with a buddy when their personel carrier rolled over on them and killed then and injured five others.
What a beautiful tribute to this young man! When I saw this picture on Fox news I felt the concern this person had for this child and likened it to a picture of a fire fighter a few years passed. May God be with all our men and women in harms way and keep them caring for those they are sent to help. Martha\o/
I remember sixty years ago when we got word that my oldest brother had been shot by a sniper in France. He was there trying to help the very people who scorn us now and have made it so difficult to fight this war. He was only 18. I praise those who are over there trying to give these people a better way of life. I can't imagine their feelings at a time like the suicide bombings when so many innocent people, old and very young have been killed and maimed.GOD BLESS OUR FORCES! MAY HE KEEP THEM IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND UNTIL THIS MESS CAN BE FINISHED. LOVE YOU ALL Alice Krebs
ALL I CAN SAY IS GOD BLESS OUR MEN. MAY OUR LORD KEEP THEM ALL SAFE
My heart breaks for these people... for you see I am the first generation that was born here in the Blessed USA. My grandparents came from the Volga River in Russia with my Uncle David being born and coming with his parents, my grand-parents, to America to get away from that very thing to start a new life in America. My fathers, father migrated from Germany as a young teenager to this country to get out of the military in Germany. Even so my father regretted all his life that he could not serve his county, the USA, in the fight in WW1 because of a childhood disease. He felt he could and would defend his country, the USA to as great an extent as his pears. Tho they missed their families, their home there they started this nation on the principles of the bible and starting schools immediately teaching daily from the bible with other schooling. To think that our nation has gone so far downhill in its morals into deparavity makes my heart sick. Verna (Luck)Byarlay
Dear Community, May God's Holy Spirit move across Iraq. May there be a Holy Ghost revival! The terrorist do what they do because they are spiritually ignorant of God's Love. Based on St. John 16:13, it is my prayer that God's Holy Spirit will lead them into all truth. When God's Holy Spirit leads us into all truth, He alone will break down satan's lies, deceptions and misconceptions. These terrorist believe what they are doing is right. May America join in prayer in a greater way than ever before for God's intercession. The stories and pictures from Iraq should humble us all. I know I am. I suppose there have been times I have been as a little child - selfish and self centered. But, may God hear my prayers for our soldiers, their families, the Iraq people and for the world. In Christ's Abiding Love, Marion Utt, President Written Word Ministries
I am a Canadian. I Praise God for the Americans who are fighting this war over there so WE don't have to fight it in North America and there has been enough on our own continent to prove that it would happen. Thank You America! Roy & Marilyn
I WAS VERY TOUCHED BY YOUR STORY. YES IT IS THE INNOCENT THAT SUFFER FOR THE CAUSE OF JUSTICE FOR ALL. WE DON'T KNOW AS AMERICAN CITIZENS SITTING HERE IN FREE AMERICA THE TRUE MEANING OF WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE. WE SEE PICTURES, WE HEAR THE NEWS AND THE MEDIA CLAMPS DOWN ON THE WORST OF THINGS. WE ALWAYS SEE AND HEAR OF THE WORST BUT WHEN SOMETHING IS GOOD THEY SELDOM REPORT IT. MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL OF THE SOLDIERS FIGHTING OVER THERE FOR PEACE. THEIR FAMILIES ARE HOME AND HOPING AND PRAYING THAT THEIR LOVED ONES WILL COME BACK HOME TO THEM FOR FIGHTING FOR THEIR COUNTY (OUR COUNTRY). GOD BLESS ALL OF THEM FOR STANDING UP TO OTHER SIDE OF LIFE AND GIVING THEIR LIVES FOR ALL OF US. GOD IS THE ALMIGHTY ONE AND OUR MEN AND WOMEN ARE OVER THEIR FIGHTING FOR THE CAUSE THEY BELIVE IN. IT IS HARD TO TAKE AND WE WONDER WHY IT HAS TO BE THIS WAY. THERE ARE NO ANSWERS TO THIS WAR AND REASONING BEHIND IT ALL. I PRAY EVERY NIGHT FOR ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE SERVICE TO COME HOME SAFE AND SOUND AND BACK TO THEIR LOVED ONES. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS.
A lot of it is USA hype to get the sympathy of the general public. The Media always like to elaborate on things of this nature. It is gruesome alright, but that is what happens during a war.
I see and wish to thank the American Soldiers for what they are doing our prayers are with them and their families,for i am a christian and are all brothers and sisters I am a Canadian and my father and grandfather fought in the first&second world war my father had a hard time even talking about the war and what he had seen without shedding a tear.Our hearts are with all the soldiers who are over in Iraq. God Bless all our soldiers whether we are Americans or Canadians may peace come over all in Iraq. Sincerly Yours; Lorna Hallwas P.O.Box 1127 Lumby,B.C. Canaca
As all of us, I have mixed feelings about what is happening in Iraq. But this kind of story really touches me. I can not imagine what it must be like to be in the situation that our troops are in. They have my full support and sincere appreciation.
