There is no place like home

Home. Safe.

Hard to believe 36 hours ago Zac and I were in a war zone.

We have it so good here. We so take it for granted.

Kiss a veteran and hug a soldier every chance you get.

Iraq is an incredibly harsh place. Vietnam, Korea, and the World Wars are impossible to fathom in terms of what soldiers lived thru.

"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm", wrote George Orwell.

    great question. but it has been going on since the beginning of time.

    greed, selfishness, hate and evil exist in this world. that's the root cause of war.
