Thanks for link Ebbie. My fervent hope and prayer is that they will be released. If that is not to be, then may they have planted seeds of peace in just one mind that will germinate and bloom as witness to their courage in the face of their realistic fears.

As I read Tom Fox's blog, it seems he understood full well the danger into which he was going. He is not there to support the terrorists or insurgents. He is there as a witness in action for peace and compassion in the world. I agree with Paul and Guest of 5:40pm. These are people acting out of a clear sense of calling and vocation who have carefully examined themselves before deciding to put themselves in harm's way. They are not naively acting in "blind faith." I know I could not walk in their shoes.
