God Bless Our Troops

Today, I found something that made me cry, as I listened and watched.

It is a Frontline PBS feature called Bad Voodoo's War, and as their caption says, it is video filmed with the cameras of the platoon of National Guard soldiers. It is the war as seen through their eyes.

As I watched, I kept thinking that this is just not right, and as usual I felt conflicted as I watched the video, and listened to the young soldiers express their feelings about what they are doing, and why. I think you will be moved by what they have to say.

I know that there are many passionate feelings about our involvement in Iraq, pro and con, but no matter what, we must support our troops in every way possible.

They're the real heroes, here, and we mustn't forget that, ever.

Their lives will never be the same, in so many ways.

To watch it, go here
