    I do not know what the answer is...I worry every moment about my brother and others who are there trying to keep the peace.

    Thank you for sharing that Space.

    I know Beary. I worry and pray every day. Many days I cry too. Your brother now has a special moment in my prayers.

    How can we even know what to think? What to believe?

    I don't like Bush and I was against this war from the start. This is sounding like Vietnam to me, I'm old enough to remember that fiasco.

    Interesting that you use the phrase "Go for Broke".

    "Go for Broke" used to be the motto of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team of the US Army in WWII - it was composed almost exclusively of Nisei (Japanese-Americans).

    One of it's most prominent (and famous) members is Sen. Daniel Ken Inouye [D-HI]. The Senator lost an arm in Italy to a direct hit from a German rifle-grenade while assaulting a hill.

    Thank you for that, Roy.

    Senator Inouye has been a loyal friend of nursing.
    If we had mobilized to get his bill passed we would have federal whistleblower protection and more.

    I don't mind digression and it's probably OK because Current Events is slow right now.

    I read the story " Go for Broke" in a Reader's Digest condense book when I was in high school.

    "True Stories of World War II" ???

    I LOVED that book - I wore the cover thin from reading and re-reading!
