And, the bad out of Iraq

Follow up on Berkeley…

Apparently, pro-war protesters are now protesting the anti-war protesters. You can get the whole story on CNN, but there was one quote that I wanted to address:

"Their treasonous action, especially at this time of war right now, is not acceptable," said Mary Pearson, a spokeswoman for the group Move America Forward.

According to dictionary.com," Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one's government."

The people of Berkeley are not committing Treason and their actions are not treasonous (which means: "having the character of, or characteristic of, a traitor; "the faithless Benedict Arnold"").

Protesting is not an act of treason. It is my belief that it is as American as Apple Pie. Standing up for what you believe is part of being an American. Now, I support both sides' right to protest and speak out, but let's save the treason word for those who really mean our country harm.

God Bless

Love comes out of Iraq…

Amid all the horror stories we're all hearing and reading about Iraq, a sweet love story shines.

Carol is the divorced mother of five. Jim is a divorced father of two and serving in Iraq. Carol's daughter needs to write to a solider serving in Iraq and…

Well, I won't spoil it for you. You have to read the story on CNN — http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/wayoflife/02/12/letters.bring.love.ap/index.html

If this doesn't make tears well up in your eyes, you probably don't have a heart.

God Bless
