Don’t forget the troops: "You may not like President Bush and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, Americans must put their differences aside and stand behind the men and women in uniform. They choose freely to put on a uniform, grab a rifle and go in harm’s way with no questions asked, knowing they might not come back.
This holiday season, do like what our family did — send a care package to a serviceman or -woman in Iraq or Afghanistan. It might be a hassle buying those items and going to the post office to mail them, but if you cannot, donate money or items to the Blue Star Moms so that organization can send it for you.
Our troops are so far from home, and many are in a combat zone facing a vicious and evil enemy that has no regard for human life, not even their own."
