During times of war and during times of peace, we must prepare for tomorrow with the realities of today.

Angels of Iraq: We are not just numbers

Posted by Rosemary Welch on January 18, 2007

I was not going to write about this topic, because many people only care about the numbers. However Mohammed over Iraq the Model has let his emotions and life lay bare on his blog. If he can do such a thing, then so can I.

I do not want see anymore numbers without the names of the people, the cause of their death and more importantly, what their life has accomplished. We are not just numbers.

There was a terrorist attack at a school yesterday, and 65 children were murdered because they dared to seek an education. Were they right to do this after being warned not to go to school? I say, “Yes.”

These are brave people in Iraq. I doubt very much that very many Americans could have survived what these Iraqis have had to endure and come out of it okay. Oh, but they can run their mouths. I sure wish each American could live in al Anbar for just a week!

I pray for their parents and relatives and friends. God, please comfort them. Help us to smite our common enemy. Please except these precious children into Heaven with love and forgiveness of sins. Make it stop, God. Make it stop.
