hard days for Canada...

I was saddened as I read the breaking news just recently that another 2 soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan...

You know, it seemed for a long time that that kind of news was only about the militia from our neighbors to the south. Well, it's about us now. It's wierd to read about suicide car bombers that are targeting Canadian vehicles there... yeah, the country that is supposed to be friends with "everyone" is now being targeted in Afghanistan by suicide bombers! I know it's naive to think that this is the first time Canada has been targeted...and I don't think that...but it is still unusual to read.

but more than that it is sad. I'm still struggling with the fact that these Canadian soldiers, some of them still kids really, are being killed out there, for...?

The last few days have been hard ones for Canada...

i find the entire concept of war utterly terrifying. and somehow when 'we' die it becomes more personal, but it reminds me that 'they' are dying daily too. why am i more emotionally invested in the 'we' than the 'they'? if i long to have the heart of my Maker, then i ought to accutely feel 'their' loses too. moments like these remind me of how far i am from who i long to be.
i've been thinking alot about honesty lately, and i'm glad that you're honest. authenticity is a good thing, cody anderson.
peace...

post script: i realize that clarity may be needed, and though the 'they' does also refer to our southerly neighbors, i was primarialy thinking of the Afghani peoples as i was spouting off there.

When looking for a pair of Hogan scarpe , you'll have to do a lot of thought about the feet that will go into them. If you have arches that are higher or lower than average, you'll need Hogan scarpe donna that offer the right support in that area. Don't know how high or low your arches are? Try getting the bottom of Hogan scarpe uomo , and then standing on a piece of paper. Trace the image left behind on a dry piece of paper and you will be able to delineate the shape of the arches of your feet. Take that paper with you when you go to get your new pair of hogan donna .
