This post is in honor of my brother -in- law SGT Roy Jones USMC who is spending this Christmas hospitalized from Iraq related complications.
Thank you all who spent this Christmas on duty so the rest of us can celebrate. You are my heroes.
I was encouraged by a Christmas story from Iraq. A church, which was bombed earlier this year by the terrorists, was rebuilt in time for the Mass of Christ. What was unique is that is was rebuilt by the Muslims for their Christian neighbors as a statement both of love and solidarity against the extremists. People loving people. That is what makes this world worth living in.
This act was made possible by the new security brought about by the sacrifice of American and Iraqi forces. We are doing some good. Thanks again.
