More to think about on Day 24

I found this today, and I wanted to share it with those of you who are interested. Whether we are for or against the war in Iraq, we must not forget that those fighting for what they believe to be right are real people like you and me with families and friends and lives. And some of them have been taken away from these things.

Playing politics with our soldiers, whether you are for or against the war, is a dishonor to them and their families. To force them to stay and send more and to support this without thought for them and their families is wrong. To scream for their being sent home without thought for them and their families is wrong. We must show our support for our troops by praying for them, praying for their safety, and praying for their quick and safe return. Let this video be a reminder that this is not about politics, but about people; real people with real families.
