Voting Time

As I type, it is about 7:15 AM, Sunday, in Iraq. The polls have already opened. My thoughts and prayers are with the Iraqi people who, for the first time in their lives, will have the opportunity to vote in a free election. It is quite possible that a higher percentage of eligible voters will go to the polls in Iraq today, under threat of death, than vote in American elections. This is an incredible comment on the bravery and desire for freedom of many Iraqis, and on how many of us take our own freedom for granted.

Please spare a thought for our troops, whose incredible courage and sacrifice have made this day possible.
