Comments: To see that dead American soldier being paraded around like a prized piece of meat hurt me deeply. A third world country was humiliating us after we tried to keep the peace. I felt like I was the one being paraded around and humiliated.
It is sad how our country who once was admired for compassion and grace, and cheered by third world countries for bringing freedom now hate and revile us because of the obscene wealth we have accumulated at the expense of these poor people. When we make 40 million dollars a year to play a kids game while people are starving all around the world, something is very, very wrong with our priorities of what is morally and spiritually right. Greed is now our god. “In God We Trust” has been replaced by “Show Me the Money”, and the world is resentful at what we have become. In fact in India the Christians there are praying for us, because they see our spiritual poverty and they weep for us.
If I am not part of the solution I am part of the problem. Oh Lord forgives me of my hypocrisy.
