the hope of the Iraqi people. They want what everyone else wants in life:
safety, security, somewhere to call home. They want a country that is safe
to raise their children in. Not a place where their children will be
abducted, raped and murdered if they do not comply with the terrorists
demands. They want to live on, rebuild and prosper. And America has given
them the opportunity, but only if we stay true to the cause and see it to
its end. But the country must unite in this endeavor...we cannot place the
burden on our military alone. We must all stand up and fight, whether in
uniform or not. And supporting us is more than sticking yellow ribbon
stickers on your cars. It's supporting our President, our troops and our
now, the burden is all on the American soldiers. Right now, hope rides
alone. But it can change, it must change. Because there is only failure and
darkness ahead for us as a country, as a people, if it doesn't.
stop all the political nonsense, let's stop all the bickering, let's stop
all the bad news and let's stand and fight!
Isn't that what America
is about anyway?
