    I'm just wondering because I got word of a candlelight vigil in Atlanta, GA where several churches and denominations got together on Wed. night to pray for the victims and for Pres. Bush and other leaders of the world to help halt the genocide. The people there described themselves as liberals, moderates and proud conservatives who all felt the genocide should be stopped by America's righteous military force, much as Iraq and Afghanistan were liberated. Apparently there was no criticism of the war in Iraq or of Pres. Bush at the vigil, which is good, people know when to drop the small issues and pay attention to the important matters.

    I think it might have been brought up once in my church over the last couple of years. We sent a teen mission trip to the Bahamas and we have been praying in support of them.
