Some truly uplifting columns and posts have been written today and yesterday - so many, in fact, I couldn't possibly give each the spotlight that it deserves.
But these thoughts from Duane, the Black Informant, rang true for me.
As long as there are oppressed people in the world, those of us that enjoy freedom’s blessings need to do whatever it takes to see to it that those people get to bask in freedom’s warm glow.
Duane ponders how blacks, given their history of enslavement and denial of civil rights in this country, cannot understand the need to lend help - and yes, our blood - to those in Iraq.
I sometimes cannot understand how Jews, persecuted for centuries, almost obliterated in the Holocaust, cannot rejoice at these people given a chance at freedom.
No matter our race, our religion, where we live on the planet ... we are interconnected. Thanks for stating it so clearly, Duane.
