TWO BLUE FINGERTIPS

This morning,I read of a young American girl,who suggested we dip our first fingertip in blue ink,to express our admiration for the citizens of Iraq-who-in the face of cold killers,car bombs,suicide bombers,rockets,and cynicism,turned out by the millions to vote in Iraq's first free election in over 50 years.

News reports indicate at least 41 people were killed on Iraqi Election Day,and that bombs and missiles were exploding near them as they lined up to vote.

Nonetheless,at least 60% of eligible voters turned out to cast their ballots-a percentage we often fail to achieve in the relatively peaceful United States.

This morning,I have dipped two fingertips-index and second in indelible blue ink.

Got a minute ? Put a little blue ink on your fingertips !

 
A day-to-day account of the war on terror,geopolitics,local politics,and any other damn thing that comes to mind.
