    Got a call today from Missionary Jerry and Marilyn Williams, 30 years in New Guinea. Their son Tim was hurt in Iraq. His Striker swerved to miss a tanker and rolled.

    Two in the vehicle were killed and Tim has a shattered L3 vertebrae. He was airlifted to Germany and his parents notified that they will be flown to Germany.

    I forget to pray and support our troops. When the news says "Two more Americans were killed in a roadside accident" remember that there are stories and families behind every one.

    Amen, Dr. Griffin.

    I see several of those families at my Church every Sunday. Let's always remember to pray for our troops and their families. Let's also respect and support the commitment they are making to make the world a more peaceful and better place in which to live.

    I have a nephew named Kyle over there. He's a good kid and I just don't know if I could demonstrate much less feel, Christian charity toward those responsible if something should happen to him. My support for our troops is more than theory and thought. Our church has sent care packages to the unit of the son of our Pastor. I am told that the troops really appreciate things like moist towlettes, skin care lotion, snack foods, and whatever you think you might like if you were there. Everything should be the small travel size so that they can carry them in their packs without too much weight. My company is developing a program which will send letters and emails to "adopted" soldiers from the areas surrounding each store telling them how much they are thought of and appreciated and supported by folks back home. A prayer is appreciated, but a prayer and a pack of Oreo's will get a bigger smile.

    God bless our men and women in uniform. I have two people in my life who are over there right now, my former sister in law and my friend, Eric.

    No matter what our politics or our thoughts on the war, we've got to pray for our troops.
