Armstrong Williams on Hope
This is part of a larger essay by Armstrong Williams at Townhall, but he said it so well. We, the spoiled and pampered children of our forefathers' struggles, need to think about this, and what it means:
This past week, it was widely reported that insurgents threatened to kill the children of anyone who voted in the elections. But 3.3 million people voted anyway. They ran through gunfire to participate in Iraq’s first free vote in over half a century. On one side you have Zarqawi threatening to kill anyone who seeks to exercise the basic right of self determination. On the other side you have millions of people who are risking their lives to vote for the first time. You want legacy? It’s already happened. This is good triumphing over the evil of oppression.
