Brave Iraqi Police

I have found a ray of light in this dark time. 40 or so Iraqis were killed and more than 200 seriously injured. It is very sad that this had to happen to ordinary people doing their job and trying to make Iraq a better place. The Iraqi Police were hit the hardest. Immediately, you would think that many would put down their badges and quit after all the death and chaos of yesterday. Yet, they all are still there, doing their job. It is truly amazing, and I am deeply inspired by it. These guys are heroes, not only to me and the Iraqis, but to the rest of the world. They are so brave, that they are still out doing their job, because it is the right thing to do. They are so selfless, they are like the fire fighters of 9/11. Seeing them just like any other day is so amazing, and they probably all know at least one of their buddies was killed or hurt in those bombings. God smile on the Iraqi police and God bless a free Iraq.
