Elections


Throw the debates and opinions out, and let's look at these elections for what they are... a historic moment and proud defining point for American soldiers. And of course, I can't think of Iraq without mentioning Samir. He told me once that he didn't care about himself as long as his baby had freedom...

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqis voted in a historic parliamentary election Thursday, with strong turnout reported in Sunni Arab areas and even a shortage of ballots in some precincts. Several explosions rocked Baghdad throughout the day, but the level of violence was low.

The Holy Spirit's message today on The Christian Prophet blog, teaching as it always does, goes into the feelings these Iraqis have as they begin to take personal responsibility for their lives.
