Cindy Sheehan, who lost her son Casey in Iraq last year, is now urging Amerians to join her in praying for the troops at noon on Friday.
“Cindy has invited President Bush to join her at noon on Friday to pray for the troops serving in Iraq and the parents who have lost their children to war,” the MeetWithCindy website said. “She will be joined in Crawford by religious leaders from around the nation. Join Cindy by organizing an interfaith prayer service or moment of silence in your community at noon on Friday the 19th.”
President Bush, who has already met with Sheehan once (he met with her and other military families at a military base near Seattle last year), is not expected to be at the prayer service. This is not surprising considering the prayer service has unfortunately become aligned with several radical organizations, not to mention the fact Sheehan has called the President “the biggest terrorist in the world.”
Although President Bush met with Sheehan last year and has continued to express sympathy for her tragic loss, he repeated on Saturday that withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq now would “betray the Iraqi people and would cause others to question America’s commitment to spreading freedom and winning the war on terror.”
President Bush stated the way the U. S. will honor our war dead is by completing the mission for which they lost their lives.
We join Sheehan and President Bush in continuing to pray for our troops.
