War Protest

An anti-war protest is scheduled for DC today. We are, after all, six years into the war in Iraq. The ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) is the main organizer for today's march, and has called for other rallies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Miami. For the first time since the war began, I do not know anyone who is marching today. I'm sure hundreds of people will be downtown for this today, but I doubt thousands. I could be wrong. It is not because the war has suddenly become popular or justified, but . . . just guessing. There are those (including myself) who believe the Obama administration has got a good handle on this and will get our folks out in as best a way possible for us & Iraq. Others no doubt have many other problems on their plate now thanks to the economy.

In the meantime, let us hope and pray with all our hearts for the safety of our troops in Iraq, and for the people of that poor country.
