View Full Version : A token of thanks...

I got this from my sister, and I thought it was a kind thing to do. This is open for anyone if they want to do it. Regardless of what your stance is regarding the war in Iraq, let's thank them anyways.

From Xerox:

If you go to this web site, http://www.letssaythanks.com , you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq.

You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

Yes, that's something thoughtful, I agree. It's a sad situation, for sure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

War is never a pleasant thing to deal with since there is always someone out there fighting for the good of their country. Sure, most of them are volunteers, but it's nervewracking if you know people over there.

Very true. I know a few folks over there.

That must be rather stressful for you, Loridion. It's a really not safe place for anyone to be. *sigh* http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Indeed. One of them is a former student of mine. He's doing a great job though and will tell you things are not all like our wonderful media likes to make them out to be.

Well to the media, bad events lead to good media. Sad since it makes the world seem like such an evil place. I wish they sometimes add more good stories to the news.

to serenity. I got one of those tiny books at a bookstore here called "Secrets of Serenity". There are some lovely sayings in it. So, I'm going to share one with you all. Anyone who has one to add, please join in, okay?

Following Tori's example, I submit the following:

That's a lovely one Zarnic!

I like this one by the Dalai Lama. "If you want others to be happy - practise compassion. If you want to be happy - practise compassion".<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
