Oh the weather outside is frightful

It's raining bullets while the troops are doing humanitarian aid. Snipers are taking shots at the delivery by the US Army of school supplies. Not little things like pencils, but truck loads of desks, chalk boards, television monitors and DVD players.

It is amazing to me how little value is placed on the people whose lives bump up against the insurgents. To them it is nothing to put a small child in harm's way, or to eradicate someone trying to help bring progress to their culture, restoring it in a deliberate and positive way; impacting an entire nation through its children.

Daniel said they were targeted, but no one got hurt. Hallelujah!
