Shocked And Saddened To Tears By Stories Of Iraq War Veterans

Last night I was on YouTube and came across “Iraq Veterans Against The War.” I was shocked and saddened to tears by what I heard as young Americans shared stories of atrocities they had committed against innocent civilians in Iraq.  Here’s a link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akm3nYN8aG8

After watching three or four of those heart-rending videos, I went to my TV, hoping to relax and came across Bill Moyers on PBS.  His topic was “Torturing Democracy” — http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/05292009/profile2.html  It was also shocking and sad as it quoted details from newly released documents about how America tortured prisoners in Guantanamo Bay.

All Americans need to look at these links . . .

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.

    Excellent Post Steve, thanks for sharing. Really heart wrenching, didn’t know if I could really watch the whole thing. You know for us here in TN our own Bob Corker recently voted in favor of the FDA carrying arms and conducting raids on those who prefer raw and organic produce. Its incredible to think this is how far our government is willing to go to control is citizens but that’s what’s happening watch the links below:
