Prayer and mourning

Sadly, tonight we have news that a U.S. Marine helicopter crashed in Kuwait killing all 4 American and 8 British soldiers aboard (corrected count). What’s even more sad is these brave individuals died while participating in efforts to liberate the Iraqi people from the grip of a ruthless dictator as protesters staged crude demonstrations in opposition to this action.

Update: The original report has been corrected. It is 12 British and 4 American dead.

Let’s continue to pray for our troops. Pray also for the families of those killed.

Update: We now know the number was 8 British killed. We also know that there have been two more marines killed today (3-21-03).
