Hope Rides Alone

(Hat Tip: AFLACK)

Some last words of a soldier who died in Iraq. SGT. Edmund John Jeffers wrote this article as an appeal for support for our brave troops who daily face the destructiveness and devastations of war.

Excerpt from "Hope Rides Alone":

The enemy slinks in the shadows and fights a coward's war against us. It is effective though, as many men and women have died since the start of this war. And the memory of their service to America is tainted by the inconsiderate remarks on our nation's news outlets. And every day, the enemy changes... only now, the enemy is becoming something new. The enemy is transitioning from the Muslim extremists to Americans. The enemy is becoming the very people whom we defend with our lives. And they do not realize it. But in denouncing our actions, denouncing our leaders, denouncing the war we live and fight, they are isolating the military from society...and they are becoming our enemy.
