The stakes of this presidential election just got higher for me. I just listened to a voice mail from my son, stationed at Ft. Polk, Louisiana, saying that their commanders have notified his brigade that they may be deployed to Iraq.
Matt called to ask me to pray that the chain of command would make the right decision, and that his brigade would be ready if they receive orders to deploy to Iraq.
If my son goes to Iraq, I want to know that he is there fighting for an American victory in the War on Terrorism. I don't want him there or anywhere as part of a John Kerry retreat.
This brings the urgency of re-electing George W. Bush right to our kitchen table, and brings me to my knees praying for a Bush victory.
