I look for news every day and don't know if I should be hopeful or in despair for these men. I can only slightly image how their families feel.

I have sat outside an operating room, counting the minutes; I have sat next to a dear one who was taking their last breaths. Each breath, I felt my heart hit something hard and scared as I waited and watched for another intake and exhale, holding my breath in a dance of time, and anxiousness.

With that said how must their loved ones feel faced each day with the knowing that those they love and who love mankind and peace may be tortured and horribly murdered for their kind and true hearts?

As I say, each day I wait for news. Each day I wonder what more I can to speak in tones of peace these men have sang.

Lor, please know you are also in my thoughts.

There is now film footage of the execution of the man from Anchorage Alaska (originally from North Dakota) but that should be no indicator of any such planned fate for these four peaceworkers. The Alaska man was accused of being part of the Security detail although his family says that he was a mechanical engineer.

The four peaceworkers are being held by a different faction, and surely there has been enough outcry - including by some Iraqis - of their innocence that there is cause for hope.

Sunnysister, if they are murdered it will not be for their kind and true hearts. It will be for the blocks of angry, vicious rock in the chests of their captors. Pray for the changing of THOSE hearts. There's a prayer in the old (1928) Book of Common Prayer (Episcopal church) that starts: "Almighty God, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickeness and live..." It's one I think of and invoke frequently these days...Tw

I don't know what I did to deserve that, Donuel.

The German archaeologist was released. Let's hope for the best for the others.

Tannywheeler- You are very right! I am thinking of them too. How must it be to carry that much anger and hatred around???

Thanks for reminding me of that prospective as well.

Tannywheeler I am familiar with your prayer from the identical version of it in Hebrew.

I am very sad and upset to learn of the death of the Alaskan who was shot in cold blood. I hope the other captives make it out alive.

"...these people knew what they were getting into. It is too bad but they are way too naive." A comment that might very apprpriately be applied to the people who set in train the invasion of Iraq. But they have made sure to sit safely out of harm's way, and leave the dying to others.

Dear All... I just got back from a few days runing about Bucks and Lancaster County... it is so nice to see that our Friends are so in your prayers...

And dear old friend Robomatic... as to dieing in the wrongs side of a war... the older I get the more I realize there is no right side of a war, but there is definatly two wrongs sides.

I will remind you that not a single death camp was liberated, unless the American or Alied armies ran across it... we all knew where they were and what they were, and no rail lines were bombed, and the so called right side destroyed the lives of the "premature anti facists... " right after the war...

I heard to elderly Jewish fellows at the great dinner, Odessa a few years ago. One was saying :
"You know, what I would do with BOTH sides in the middle east? I'd tell them stop it. Go to your rooms... both of you!"
The other fellow, " Well the Arabs started it with... "
"Don't tell me that! " The first said... " When your kids are acting up, fighting, do you ask who started it? No! You tell them, Go to your room and stop fighting, stay there till you can behave! That's what I would tell BOTH! No Levi Jeans! No Nike Sneakers! NOTHING! GO TO YOUR ROOMS! "

Beleive what you want about sides, dear fellow, war is the only enamy.
We can no longer afford war. As you see the melting of the ice caps, and the drownings of polar bears, extinctions don't stop with one species we can fight over who is right and who is wrong until we all die, or we can stand in the way of war... and if that becomes the solution, we live. simple as that.

Merry Christmas, Joyful New Year, Happy Kwansa, Happy Chanukah, Peaceful Ramadan, Boutiful Davali, and good Festivus for the restofus,

Peace
lor

Ahhhh but you forget, InObu. Festivus involves a test of strength fight between father and son. Same old. Same old.
Very strange but my inner self tells me that these men are at peace, not dead necessarily, but at peace in their hearts. No fear.

Mary, you refect a message that came to me, and I delivered at Meeting a few First Days ago, about what it is to walk through the shaddow of the vally of death and fear no evil...
It is not to be devoid of the human fears and concerns for our lives and families, but as you say, to be at peace with those who believe that they wish to do you harm. In fact, often it is not you, but you as a symbol they wish to harm, just as we are killing many over their as symbols, but real flesh and blood and pain and fear results ... but, that to be at peace, to be without fear of evil in all that, is to fill that void of evil with love, and I know, ( not am sure... ) I know, that Tom and his friends are filling that void of evil with love, whatever the outcome, they fear no evil.

Peace and joy this Christmas season

I am so very saddened to learn the death of Tom Fox has been confirmed. I continue to hope and pray for the all those who are hostage, especially the other three members of the CPT in Iraq.

Condolences to Mr. Fox's family and all who loved him. He was truly a peacemaker. May the seeds he planted bloom in the hearts of many.

I am saddened by the death of a soldier for Peace.

His mission was no less significant than the death of a military soldier.

His bravery will be a light for all of us who want a peaceful world.
