Day 163 - One at a Time
Blogger Rusten D. Currie writes from the Sandbox:
We are winning this fight. One shot at a time. One block at a time, one pair of shoes on a child's feet at a time, one vote at a time, one free election at a time.
To a soldier this is simply duty, nothing more. To the Iraqis, this is a gift, paid with the blood of youth, paid for in missed anniversaries, paid for in bitter combat, paid for in the hopes and dreams of Americans being extinguished forever on streets called Haifa, and 60th, in towns called Dora, and Karadda. In a country called Iraq, in a place once called the cradle of civilization.
We are the light by which the new democracy of Iraq will traverse through the darkness. We are Americans!
