This is not a political blog, but politics are driving our lives this week. We are appalled and devastated by what has happened this week in Afghanistan. We grieve for those who have fallen and we pray for those trying to escape the violence. We pray for our dear friends in Israel who are in the same neighborhood with those who would annihilate them.
I'll quote my eldest brother (RIP), Lt. Colonel USAF and pilot. As the chaos of pulling out of Vietnam happened, he and so many others were totally frustrated. He said, "The politicians take us into war, but won't let us win it." It has happened again.
Please know that not everyone in the USA voted for this administration and what is happening. In fact many of us saw the writing on the wall and voted to try to prevent it. We will be voting again soon and this time I believe more people will have awakened to the truth.
We now return to our regularly scheduled non-political blogging....
