>> The other day, my nine year old son wanted to know why we were at
>> war. My husband looked at our son and then looked at me.
>>
>> My husband
>> and I were in the Army during the Gulf War and we would be honored to
>> serve and defend our Country again today.
>>
>> I knew that my husband
>> would give him a good explanation.
>>
>> My husband thought for a few
>> minutes and then told my son to go stand in our front living room
>> window.
>>
>>
>>
>> He said 'Son, stand there and tell me what you see?'
>>
>>
>> 'I see trees and cars and our neighbor's houses,' he replied.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK, now I want you to pretend that our house and our yard is the
>> United States of America and you are President Bush.
>>
>> '
>>
>> Our son giggled and said 'OK.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Now son, I want you to look out the window and pretend that every
>> house and yard on this block is a different country' my husband said.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK Dad, I'm pretending.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Now I want you to stand there and look out the window and pretend
>> you see Saddam come out of his house with his wife, he has her by the
>> hair and is hitting her. You see her bleeding and crying.
>>
>> He hits her
>> in the face, he throws her on the ground, then he starts to kick her
>> to death.
>>
>> Their children run out and are afraid to stop him, they are
>> screaming and crying, they are watching this but do nothing because
>> they are kids and they are afraid of their father.
>>
>> You see all of
>> this, son ... what do you do?'
>>
>> 'Dad?'
>>
>> 'What do you do son?'
>>
>> 'I'd call the police, Dad.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'OK. Pretend that the police are the United Nations.
>>
>> They take your
>> call. They listen to what you know and saw but they refuse to help.
>>
>>
>> What do you do then son?'
>>
>> 'Dad ......... but the police are supposed to help!' My son starts to
>> whine.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'They don't want to, son, because they say that it is not their place
>> or your place to get involved and that you should stay out of it,' my
>> husband says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'But Dad ... he killed her!!' my son exclaims.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'I know he did .... but the police tell you to stay out of it.
>>
>> Now I
>> want you to look out that window and pretend you see our neighbor who
>> you're pretending is Saddam turn around and do the same thing to his
>> children'
>>
>> 'Daddy ..... he kills them?'
>>
>> 'Yes, son, he does.
>>
>> What do you do?'
>>
>> 'Well, if the police don't want to help, I will go and ask my next
>> door neighbor to help me stop him,' our son says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'Son, our next door neighbor sees what is happening and refuses to
>> get involved as well.. He refuses to open the door and help you stop
>> him,' my husband says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'But Dad, I NEED help!!! I can't stop him by myself!!'
>>
>> 'WHAT DO YOU DO SON?' Our son starts to cry.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK, no one wants to help you, the man across the street saw you ask
>> for help and saw that no one would help you stop him.
>>
>> He stands
>> taller and puffs out his chest.
>>
>> Guess what he does next, son?'
>>
>> 'What Daddy?'
>>
>> 'He walks across the street to the old ladies house and breaks down
>> her door and drags her out, steals all her stuff and sets her house
>> on fire and then ... he kills her.
>>
>> He turns around and sees you
>> standing in the window and laughs at you.
>>
>> WHAT DO YOU DO?'
>>
>> 'Daddy...'
>>
>> 'WHAT DO YOU DO?' Our son is crying and he looks down and he
>> whispers, 'I'd close the blinds, Daddy.
>>
>> '
>>
>> My husband looks at our son with tears in his eyes and asks him
>> 'Why?'
>>
>> 'Because, Daddy ..... the police are supposed to help people who need
>> them ... and they won't help ... You always say that neighbors are
>> supposed to HELP neighbors, but they won't help either ... they won't
>> help me stop him ... I'm afraid ... I can't do it by myself, Daddy
>> ... I can't look out my window and just watch him do all these
>> terrible things and, and, do nothing .. so, I'm just going to close
>> the blinds ... so I can't see what he's doing ... and I'm going to
>> pretend that it is not happening.
>>
>> '
>>
>> I start to cry.
>>
>> My husband looks at our nine year old son standing in
>> the window, looking pitiful and ashamed at his answers to my
>> husband's questions and he says ...
>>
>> 'Son'
>>
>> 'Yes, Daddy.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Open the blinds because that man .... He's at your front door
>> ...'WHAT DO YOU DO?'
>>
>> My son looks at his father, anger and defiance in his eyes.
>>
>> He balls
>> up his tiny fists and looks his father square in the eyes, without
>> hesitation he says: ' I DEFEND MY FAMILY, DAD!! I'M NOT GONNA LET HIM
>> HURT MOMMY OR MY SISTER, DAD!!! I'M GONNA FIGHT HIM, DAD, I'M GONNA
>> FIGHT HIM!!!!!'
>>
>> I see a tear roll down my husband's cheek and he grabs our son to his
>> chest and hugs him tight, and says ... ' It's too late to fight him,
>> he's too strong and he's already at YOUR front door son ... you
>> should have stopped him BEFORE he killed his wife, and his children
>> and the old lady across the way.
>>
>> You have to do what's right, even if
>> you have to do it alone, before its too late,' my husband whispers.
>>
>>
>>
>> THAT scenario I just gave you is WHY we are at war with Iraq .
>>
>> When
>> good men stand by and let evil happen, son, THAT is the greatest
>> atrocity in the world.
>>
>> 'YOU MUST NEVER BE AFRAID TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT
>> EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO DO IT ALONE!' BE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN! BE
>> PROUD OF OUR TROOPS!! SUPPORT THEM!!! SUPPORT AMERICA SO THAT IN THE
>> FUTURE OUR CHILDREN WILL NEVER HAVE TO CLOSE THEIR BLINDS...'
>>
>> This should be printed in every newspaper and posted in every school
>> in America . Of course that won't happen so we'll use the Internet.
>>
>> If
>> your blinds are closed, do nothing with this email.
>>
>> If they are open
>> I do not need to tell you what to do.
