Fighting the Good Fight

This Memorial Day weekend, please pause a few moments to remember why we are fighting the good fight and say a prayer for the safe return for those good men and women defending our freedom. Regardless of your political affiliations, or your view of Iraqi, good men have died for our Country. I believe that they are fighting the good fight.

I wish major media outlets would carry this story as a major headline – “Iraqi coach, players killed” – I found this story in a “brief” section on page two of the sports section for the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer:

An Iraqi tennis coach and two of his players were killed because they were wearing shorts, apparently in violation of a warning by Islamic extremists.

The athletes were in shorts when they were killed and police believe the attack was related to a warning by extremists against such attire.

Imagine living in a place where you will be casually executed by a group of people that do not approve of the clothes on your back.

God bless America.
