Words May Not Be Necessary!

Sometimes, certain photos are so special and evoke such emotion that words may not be necessary!

U.S. Army Task Force Regulators 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment Staff Sgt. Fred Hampton, of Lexington, Ky., kneels on a knee to talk with a young Iraqi boy at the future site of Regular 6 Park in the Thawra 1 section of the Sadr City District of Baghdad on June 20.

How would you title this?

You are very welcome, you do so much for me that you don't even know.
Your CHRISTIAN wisdom is most appreciated, daily.
As for the photo...I don't think words can do it justice.
The kindness, strength, vulnerability, humility, confidence, trust, caring, concern, youthful infatuation, success, love of LIFE, freedom, etc....
Just look at it for a while, think about what that child might be thinking or saying, what it will mean to him in 10 or 20 years, in such contrast with Saddamm's Iraq.
Opportunity. Hope. REAL CHANGE.

I think we've all had a child step up onto our feet in special moments, in our living rooms or the home of a friend...but this is outside... in the middle of a war against terror.

Simply put, this is GOD at work.
A virtual impossibility without Christ our Lord and His ubiquitous LOVE.
Bless all who see this pic.
