War....Some More..

I just want to prelude by saying I am not a tree-hugger, liberal, Commie-fag. This post is not about being against war or letting tyrants doing what they want at any cost. This is about the unimaginable pain of losing a son or daughter. War causes death and those who die are somebody’s baby.
There is not greater pain for a parent than to lose a child. If we go to war, people will lose thier children. I look at my own and I could not imagine how much suffering it would be for me to lose one of my kids. I don’t think I could bare it. If we go to war people’s kids will die on both sides.
War may not be able to be avoided. Saddam needs to be stopped, N. Korea needs to be stopped, Al-Quada needs to be stopped. I just want peole to realize that kids (of all ages) on both sides will die. That means immense suffering will happen on both sides. I don’t want that to happen.
What I ask of you T-People is to realize that, no matter what side of the fence you are. If you are religious. pray for peace. Pray for the dismantling of Saddam’s empire and the shutting down of N.Korea with out bloodshed. If you are not, just keep it in mind. War is not a good thing and never is. Sometimes it is unavoidable, but miricles can happen. I just don’t want our or thier babies to suffer the consequesnces from the rantings of a few nuts a few nuts.

P.S. I had a better post but this new forum nuked it when I tried to post it…GRRRRR)

Well said.

Pray for peace, prepare for war.
