Monday, April 14, 2003 AD The POWs Are Free! I'm probably the last to know, eh? I love this article (link via Rudy C) in which Shana Johnson is worried about her hair, of all things. See...she's a girl, not a soldier, after all! Thumbs down to women in the military, ambivalence about the war, and elation over the safe return of the prisoners.
One more thing. Among the seven were individuals of at least four different racial backgrounds and born in at least three different countries. I'm not a flag-waving patriot by any stretch of the imagination, nor am I by any means enamored with much of contemporary American culture, but in our diversity, we are more like what the church should be -- a people from every nation, tribe and tongue -- than most other countries. And that, as Martha would say, is a good thing. Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 4/14/2003 07:13:00 PM
