4000 Dead....prayers needed - 24th March 2008, 01:05 PM

I see that the US death toll in Iraq has reached 4000.

That's very sad news.

Some 175 British and 133 "other nations" soldiers have also given their lives.
(complete stats here, if you want to see them.)

I think every one of those 4308 young men and women deserve to be remembered, not matter what your political feelings about the war (I have been opposed since before day one).

I am going to start saying the Prayers for the Dead in my religion for every one of them. I invite others to join me; say whatever prayers you think are appropriate.

...that the 82,000 - 89,000 Iraqi Dead are not worthy of our prayers or that they do not deserve to be mentioned and commemorated. But 82,000 (or so) prayers seems like a project a little too vast to launch on by myself.

I will join you in your prayer efforts, for the 4300 and the 82,000. I may not agree with the war, but they deserve to be honored.

I also pray every day for the lives of the men and women who are still over there, and for peace in the world.

i doubt it is lack of interest as much as it is a leaving people speachless and in a place of silence.....the feed back on the knowledge you are shareing i would think be in line with two things...symapathy for the family's ...greatfullness to those soldiers...who I hope are now knowing....and the other would be it could evoke political chaos for trying to blame...and who to blame...

during a time of war....i would not think that humans would not have there moments and some endless moments.....we have an idea what we think careing looks like...what right behavior looks like...right response looks like.....

i have faith in our species even if we do a lot of unseamingly things.......

thank you for shareing............

I will pray, and also for their loved ones, who probably need the prayers more.

Pray for Peace: - 13th April 2008, 03:42 AM

The war like most wars is a sad thing and someday maybe the international community the United Nations or a similar body will finally be able to eliminate war which was one of it's intentions:

The Preamble reads as follows:

WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED
to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind,
and
to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and
to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
AND FOR THESE ENDS
to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours, and
to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security
, and
to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and
to employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
HAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMS

...was that it wasn't "the peoples" of the "United Nations" who signed the Charter, nor who send delegates to the General Assembly. It was the States, the governments.

Whatever "the peoples" may have wanted, the governments were not likely to give it to them.

And, BTW, I am still working my way through the prayers. It will take about another 5 months or so, working on a 25-a-day basis.
