A Wonder

Ben Stein: “On Monday, I had dinner with a man named Sgt. John Quinones who has just come back from two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He is a wounded, highly decorated infantryman. A real hero. He said he thought things in Iraq were difficult, but the Iraqi National Guardsmen he worked with were fantastically brave. He can't wait to go back and fight more. He wants his wife to go see her mother but they can't afford it. Wifey and I said we would pay. It seems like little enough to do.”

Strange, how we can suddenly love people we don’t know and will never meet.

Hey, come on. It's hard to read when there are tears in my eyes.

Great stuff.
