Hi. I often think about the war in Iraq and how long our soldiers have been over there fighting for them and for us to be free from terrorism. But we have been over there for soooo long now and our soldiers are getting terrorized dailyand , I believe the majority of the Iraq'a want us out of their country. I believe if we cannot get things done over their soon and pull our troops out of there, we may be facing war here in the Unites States from them. We lost alot of lives on 9/11 and at war, and it could get worse if we do not do something about this quicker. Im not sure how to prepare for a war as I have never had to experience any of it. I do know that I am afraid each day that I get up and turn the news on, it may say we are at War and something has been bombed. It is very scary. I think there is more terrorist all over the world other than just in Iraq. I think we have some who live among us daily. Do you think you could survive if we are attacked through war? I think I would be so scared and in shock that I wouldn't know what to do.

I think the government should make the means for every one to have food. It is hard for families to stock up and get prepared for antyhing these days.

War is never short, never easy and always horrible. War is everywhere. Just because bombs are not going off over here does not mean there is no war in America. Each day our men and women in uniform, undercover and in government positions are finding, capturing and changing the plans of those that wish to destroy us and everything that we hold dear. Our soldiers are trying to keep the bulk of it away. They are doing there job, and already they are starting to be disrespected just like our Vietnam era vets were. War will not end on this earth until the prescribed time and what we must do is continue to pray, to move on and to teach. We must educate, uplift and encourage. The more of us that stamp out hatred and ignorance, the less war there will be.

Yeah. I do pray for all of us every day. I'm just scared to actually see the war in America. I haven't lived long enough to go through times like that in our country yet.

I try not to give it too much worry. There wouldn't be much I could do about it. I am thankful I live outside the city however. I feel a little better knowing that. I guess I would gather as much water and food we could store and pray it didn't get too bad. I'm sure I would be in an absolute panick as would most of us. Hopefully it won't come to that but it's almost loooking inevitable as we just can't keep our noses out of the business of other countries.

Yes, it would be nice if we all could have enough money to prepare for the war if it should happen. I don't think alot of us could get enough food and supplies to prepare for it in full. I think other countries should settle their own battles too but since 9/11, I'm not sure what we could or should have done about the situation.

Nothing, because we are in India. We see it on newschannel. Even only army or politicians can do anything, no else. take lots of food inside home so not die because of hunger.

I live in the U.S. It scares me that the war may come here from the other countries. I have never been through anything like that yet. I hope to have enough money to stock up for such times if it should happen.

There is nothing we can do but pray dear. If it happens, it happens. But don't waste today worrying, as you will loose this precious day, and it may or may not happen. We can only hope it won't, and our soldiers will be safe from harm daily.

Yeah. It just seems we aren't getting any where with the war other than losing lives. It is very depressing.
