WHY Lord?


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.'

Thanks for posting this.

It is a disgrace to equate the deaths of the men and women in Iraq to the ones who follow. It is a betrayal of those who died in the unjust war in Iraq.

Just as you can't be Catholic and support abortion, you can't be Catholic and support an unjust war, for oil.

Oh, and when you are one of those troops you can ask about standing in front of them. I am a veteran, who completed his entire term of duty, about the same time Bush was shirking his, and Cheney had other priorities.
