Candles and Hope
It was raining this evening, the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, but we stood under the portico of the courthouse holding our candles. We sang a bit of Dona nobis pacem, and Everyone beneath his fig tree.
A few pro-victory group members stood at the edge of the curb waving huge American flags and holding "God bless America signs." I certainly wish God to bless our country, but I have trouble with the "USA #1" part.
Will the next President put his or her hope in international cooperation or in bombs?
