Wictory Wednesday- plus A Real Iraq Story

Hello, it's Wictory Wedneday again. This week I didn't receive a subject email from our organizer. So I will continue my appeal from the past week. Since it's a very important subject to everyone no matter political view. If you are a Conservative, Liberal, or Moderate, it's just as important to you as much as anyone else. So please help. We ask that you sign the online petition and help preserve Social Security for future generations.
Today on Dayside with Linda Vester, there was a touching story that originated in Iraq. During his tour of duty in Iraq, Army National Guardsman Capt. Scott Southworth visited an orphanage in 2003. During his visit, an 11 year old Iraqi boy with a disability (reports are sketchy it's either CP or CF) became attached to Capt. Southworth. And over several visits the boy, named Ala'a, started to call Capt. Southworth "daddy".
Well eventually Capt. Southworth's tour of duty in Iraq was over and he returned to the United States. Being a devout Christian, Capt Southworth felt that he couldn't face Ala'a (also Christian) in heaven on Judgment Day and explain why he left him in Iraq. So, facing overwhelming obstacles, Capt. Southworth went back to Iraq, adopted Ala'a, and brought him back to the United States.
The moral of this story is, not all of our efforts in Iraq are warlike. We are not there to oppress the Iraqi people or violate their human rights. If anything, we are there to make sure their human rights are respected. We could all learn a lesson from Capt. Southworth and Ala'a. Just think how you would be able to face any Iraqi on Judgment Day if we hadn't gone to Iraq to end the oppression. Just think about it.
Wictory Wednesday asks that you help pass the Social Security Reform package. This week you can help by signing the online petition. http://www.preservingsocialsecurity.com http://www.blogsforbush.com/
