A Dark Anniversary


As we continue the death march of the Iraq war into a fourth year this week, let us mourn for over 33,000 innocent civilian lives along with over 2,300 US service men and women...all someone's loved one...all lost.

Please visit Baghdad Burning, a blog that I read regularly from one young Iraqi woman's perspective living in the midst of the horrors of war.

Let us pray for peace on this dark anniversary.

A part of me can't even believe this is where we are today. I think back to March 2003 and how then I truly believed we wouldn't go to war. It was just craziness, right? Oh, I was so terribly wrong. And all the things I featred would happen--knew would happen--are happening.

It truly takes faith to pray for peace in Iraq. On many a day I can't find it, not for this.

Thank you for lighting a candle.

Hi, Tonya!

I thought of you when reading this webpage today:

"Sudan, Chad, Oil and Genocide"

Alas, no mention of the Congo -- at least in this article. But it's the first in a series.
