I just finished reading a very interesting journal blog from a friend of a friend who is stationed in Baghdad. It gives a very good perspective of what is going on over there. It also made me appreciate the sacrifices people are going through there and really gives you a perspective of what is really important in life.

We are all truly blessed, especially if you are reading this…..because it means you are somewhat healthy (I imagine you wouldn’t be reading this in the hospital in the ER), have an education (in the fact that you can read), have amenities (internet access, electricity, etc) and spare time.

You can get to the weblog at http://www.livejournal.com/users/christian_iraq/

It can also be found in the links section on the right margin of this blog page. —->>

No matter what your situation, take a moment and appreciate your freedom, safety and opportunities. And while you are at it, say a prayer for Christian as well as all of our troops.
