    I Refuse to Cry Again...

    A cousin of mine nearly was killed in the Iraq war. When I heard I thought he'd died, I hope I really don't have to go through that again.  It just felt like the world was shattering into nothing and there was no menaing any more. The war is evil, it must be stopped.

    My Husband Is There Now Too.

    This is my husband's second 15 month deployment to Iraq.  I think that we are actually enabling the terrorists and giving them more ammunition to recruit others into their organizations by our presence there.  I absolutely believe that the private firms like Blackwater...

    Where Is America Headed?

    A few days ago the headlines stated that the death toll of our troops had hit four thousand.  It broke my heart!  I love our troops and support them with gifts and books, but I hate the lies that got us into this position.  This country sent them over to a conflict...
