Hope, Thanks and Praise-Michael Yon


This is too good to pass up.

Michael Yon reports from Baghdad a Catholic church has re-opened.

From Instapundit:

THANKS AND PRAISE: Michael Yon emails: “I photographed men and women, both Christians and Muslims, placing a cross atop the St. John’s Church in Baghdad. They had taken the cross from storage and a man washed it before carrying it up to the dome. A Muslim man had invited the American soldiers from ‘Chosen’ Company 2-12 Cavalry to the church, where I videotaped as Muslims and Christians worked and rejoiced at the reopening of St John’s, an occasion all viewed as a sign of hope. The Iraqis asked me to convey a message of thanks to the American people. ‘Thank you, thank you,’ the people were saying. One man said, ‘Thank you for peace.’ Another man, a Muslim, said ‘All the people, all the people in Iraq, Muslim and Christian, is brother.’ The men and women were holding bells, and for the first time in memory freedom rang over the ravaged land between two rivers. (Videotape to follow.)”

Let’s hope these sentiments continue to spread.

Let’s put it together–Catholic Church, Baghdad, Christian and Muslim working together, Thanks, Freedom bells—what part of good news is it that makes the left so sick?

Let’s hope we see many more stories such as this. While you’re at it, help Michael out so he can continue bringing us his good news–the news the MSM doesn’t want you to know and the news that’s the death knell for the defeatists. You can donate to him here.

Thank you Michael, and thanks to the men and women who worked together to re-open this church.

Catch the Wave!
