I might've mentioned before that Tom Fox, the recently slain peacekeeper, had ties to our little community here?
"Fox studied at EMU’s(Eastern Mennonite University) Center for Justice and Peacebuilding in the spring of 2004 before going to Iraq with the Chicago-based Christian Peacemaker Teams." Click here: The Daily News Record: Search Details
Anyway,Tom Fox had a blog:
AS a graduate of Eastern Mennonite University, I am disappointed.
Mr. Fox’s death is a tragedy. However, in all the reports I have seen or heard not one mention is made of thanking the brave members of the U.S. military and the Iraqi Forces who risked their lives to find and free him and his friends and who may have been wounded or even killed while trying to find and free him.
These brave men and women of the U.S. and Iraqi military are continuing to look for and free the remaining hostages. Some of them may be killed or wounded.
Is your piety so one sided that you have no care and concern for those who may disagree with your viewpoint, yet have risked and may have even given their lives to save the life of your friend?
