: So right! That is reality! Then as I look into the eyes of each of
: them, I do not know their pain, I cannot feel their pain, and I
: will say that whatever the suffering is now at this time I can
: only say thank God I am not there; yet, I, beyond the fact that
: they are soldiers who are fit for battle and so forth, I can
: still have deep sympathy because they are human. Yes, I know
: someone will say so are the Iraqi, and they would be right. If I
: see the faces of them spread across the screen as such, or see a
: woman holding a dead baby in her arms, I will feel sympathy,
: because it is within me to feel that way. Yes I feel sympathy
: for the pows, and hope and pray to God, or to Allah, or to That
: Supreme Being over us, that these POW will soon be free and come
: home safely.
: I think about Viet Nam, because I came out of that era, when my
: cousins and even some of my buddies went to fight in the
: jungles, or along the Mekong Delta, or some rice paddies. I
: think about those times as well, the POWs. My heart goes out to
: each and everyone, and I will never erase the eyes and the face
: of the lady being held there.
Joseph, Sometime I think the media shows and say too much. I normally do not watch t.v. or have it on, but doing these times I would like to keep up with what is going on.
I too am from the Viet Nam era, it didn't bother me as much as this do, I also had family and friends there, they were away from the fighting so I didn't worry too much for them. As far as I know I haven't anyone in the war now, but it bothers me so much with the POW's and MIA'S, I don't know which would be the hardest for me if it were one of my family or friends Missing or captive. I think the hardest would be the not knowing (IF). Let's continue to pray. Barbara
