Make Love Not War

This came to me this Sunday morning. I was touched and glad to be reminded of the sacrifices our troops (and indeed your troops) make for us. It is so easy to forget their living hell and their emotional insecurities – living with death by their side. My thoughts go out to them and I am sure yours do to.

It is a sad old world. Who the hell invented wars? What mother wants to carry her unborn baby for nine month and then nuture him or her till teens, only to see them sent to war – maybe never to return. The loss of a child is the BIGGEST sacrifice. Stop this killing. Send the troops home.

Women of the world we should unite and stop all these damn wars – let’s make love and make peace instead of making war.
Jeanne Hambleton.

This is unlike the others I have received so I am sending this one on as it really hits home when you read the various comments attached to each picture. I really feel for those soldiers.

You take a warm shower to help you wake up.
He goes days or weeks without running water.

You complain of a ‘headache’, and call in sick.
He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.

You put on your anti war/don’t support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.
He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.

You make sure your cell phone is in your pocket.

He makes sure his Bible is close by.

You talk trash about your ‘buddies’ that aren’t with you.
He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.

You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.
He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists.

About FMS Global News

Folllowing Rick Usher's death in December 2008, at his request in September of that year, I had agreed, as his principal contributor and an experienced journalist, to run the FMS Global News service due to his heavy commitments to music and raising research funds through this avenue. Following his sad and sudden death I hope to continue his work as he would have wished.
