    Saw this very SERIOUS message on a normally SATYRICAL website, thought I'd pass it on.

    Tragedy Of War

    NOT OUR USUAL STUFF THIS BUT IT MAKES YOU THINK!

    This needs to make headline news...not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!!
    It's a tough, but heart-warming story...with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.
    John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.
    He is a real Star of the war, and represents what the Western world is trying to do.
    This, my friends, is worth sharing with the WORLD! Go for it!! You'll never see things like this in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don't, but the public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that we're making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time. We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust our sails...

    Thanks Mike for that post. Sometimes people forget that civilians are caught in the middle of war, especially children.
