A mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die in Iraq ?'



A mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die in Saudi
Arabia ?'


A mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die in Kuwait?'



Another mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die in
Vietnam ?'



Another mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die in
Korea ?'



Another mother asked this President... 'Why did my son have to die on Iwo
Jima ?'



Another mother asked President... 'Why did my son have to die on a
battlefield in France ?'



Yet another mother asked President... 'Why did my son have to die at
Gettysburg ?'



And yet another mother asked President... 'Why did my son have to die on a
frozen field near Valley Forge ?'

Then long, long ago, a mother asked...


'Heavenly Father ... why did my Son have to die on a cross outside of
Jerusalem ?'

The answer is always the same... 'So that others may live and dwell in peace,
happiness, and freedom.'

This was emailed to me with no author. I thought the magnitude and the
simplicity were awesome.

If you are not willing to stand BEHIND our troops,

Please, please feel free to stand in front of them....

great post. i have to say i have run into more people that support us than ever before. with that said most people would not understand what service nor sacrifice is.

I can't say I fully understand the sacrifices our servicemen & women make to keep me in the life I have, as I've never served.

I CAN say that I DO appreciate it in every respect that I can.

I can also say that my opposition to the war isn't because I don't appreciate those sacrifices, but because I don't want to see any more unnecessary ones.
