The 1,500 Who Gave Their All

The number of US soldiers killed in Iraq has topped 1,500. As the flame of Democracy spreads throughout the repressive and terroristic regimes of the Middle East, it has never been more evident that these brave young, and not so young, men and women gave their lives for a very, very wonderful and important cause: That others might become free, and that America might remain free.

It is very interesting to note that the 1,500-hero milestone appears to be passing with little recognition from the liberal Left -- the same who were falling all over themselves to wail and criticize when the 1,000-hero milestone was reached. Could it be that, once again, they're seeing that they are on the wrong side and they're adopting a CYA attitude?

Take a moment today to pray thanks for these heroes, and God's compassion on their families.
