Praying For The Boys At War


I think Rod hits on something that involves more than churches. Americans don’t, still, act like we are at war. In fact, we talk about the Iraq war, as if we haven’t been at war since Sept. 11. Iraq’s a battle in a larger war, albeit a key one. And, yeah, we have soldiers on duty and at work this very minute, as we have had for quite awhile now. Just now are we getting back to the “God Bless America”s and flagwaving we saw so much of immediately post-Sept. 11. I think the forgetting to pray for the armed forces and our leaders, etc. is just another symptom of that.
