October...finally!

Thirty-Nine American Soldiers were killed in the month of September. Although that number is down from June, July and August...

It's 39 families who have received 'that knock at the door'.
It's 39 families who will face the holidays with an empty chair.
It's 39 moms who have buried a child.

October is a new month, a new season.
May we see even fewer casualties in the month of October.

Amen...I also continue to pray for the suffering of our troops who return damaged. God Bless all of our young men and women.

I hate it when I hear about a soldier getting killed over there. Let's hope for no more and they come home.
