Soldiers in Baghdad

I finally emailed Chris Langmeyer, who’s stationed in Baghdad many months. It’s so hard to think of what to say to someone whose life is continuously in danger. I do pray, every day, in my own incoherent nonreligious sort of way, for the safety of him and everyone in Iraq. How can we bring soldiers home as soon as possible? How can we start to undo the deadly mess we’ve made?
