won't let lj defeat the lurve patrol! [Aug. 9th, 2004|08:36 pm]
The lovely and uber talented ilenebook was so gracious as to give me an icon - her youngest son (imagine 2 sons Iraq bound!!! )

Finally I figured how to beat lj into icon submission.
I'm a total vegan hippy pacifist who hates war - it sucks - but I always want to be mindful of people in the service taking on such a hardship.

Also - the equally innocent Mom & kids and families in Iraq who have been beaten upon for way too long... they are also in my prayers.

I say the world needs more love patrol - let's stop the craziness already

thanks again ilenebook!

Oh goodie.. you did it.

Looks good. I am against the war too.
Two is too high a price to pay. One is too high a price.
I joined a group called AMP Another Mother for Peace.
My license plate says Pray for Peace
My bumper sticker says. War is not good for children and other living things. I am so with you on this one.
I hope this gets resolved soon ...but I don't think it will. I hope my grandkids don't have to go to war..phuffft!

I'm really ashamed to say, that often, the war slips my mind. Not alot of emphasis is placed on the war over here, almost like everyone has forgotten... the height of ignorance really.

I feel my personal reasons for this is because I find war too painful to think about, a bit like a regretful memeory. The whole thing is a tragedy from every angle, as all wars are.

My heart goes out to everyone involved, those trapped on both sides.

I am with all of you on this issue. War takes so much from everyone and makes us lose sight of other perspectives. I have to admit that I am ignorant of a lot of things in this war, but war in any form cannot be good. I feel for all the troops in Iraq who have taken on the duty to protect us and hope for their safe return.

That's the attitude to have. There's too many people who support the war that don't understand what's going on and too many people who are against the war who forget the feelings of the soldiers and families involved. I'm all for love patrol.
