I don't plan on commenting much on politics here. So I will leave it to greater minds to comment on the content of President Bush's speech but the embrace between the Iraqi woman and the mother of the fallen Marine brought me to tears.
It is every mother's hope that they raise children who will live to make a difference in the world. It is even more striking for this mother who has the lasting memory of a son who made a difference in the world because he was willing to die.
Greater love hath no man than this that he is willing to lay down his life for his friend. John 15:13
