War is Hell
August 31, 2010, the President of the United States will speak on the official ending of the Iraq war.
No matter what he has to say or what he will predict about Iraq’s future …or the continuing war in Afghanistan, he can not capture in a speech the suffering that has taken place.
Starting with the tears shed by those who lost loved ones on the USS Cole and in the towers on 9-11, the tears continue. Each day families in Iraq lose loved ones . Every week our finest young men and women are brought home to a waiting honor guard. Thousands are still in harm’s way.
I have decided to share some of the pictures that we have seen throughout the war. It may help us remember that this war, as are all others, is definitely a hell.
There is no way to speak to the grief that has been and will continue to be suffered. We are free Americans because of the bravery of soldiers throughout the world who fought in the World Wars. That freedom is in jeopardy by those who would try to take it away; setting up their own brand of enslavement.
God’s blessings to a world that is trying to find its way.
