Terry Jones is NOT my friend

I have no respect for people who pick fights they are not willing and capable of finishing. Terry Jones will NOT be in Afghanistan to put out the fire he starts. I won't have time to burn books on Sept. 11th. I will be too busy sending love and prayers to my husband. He doesn't have the luxury of hiding behind a lighter and letting others take the heat. It is easy to start a fire. It takes true courage to brave the flames and put the fire out. Terry Jones is not a hero. He is not the voice of America. Yes, we are a military family. However, we still fight to greet the day with love in our hearts. I am thinking of all of you with love in my heart regardless of your religon or where you were born. I am hoping your child lives a life of love and respect regardless if their bedtime story comes from the Koran or Bible. No child deserves to live a life of fear and hate. My heart is open to you and my lighter is down.

It is very sad. He doesn't represent many Americans or Christians, giving both a bad name. The media needs to stop covering it. They have their right to burn whatever - let them do it without an audience, where it can only hurt a few. With this media circus it is bound to hurt many. God bless your husband and the rest of the troops. They don't deserve to be fighting this battle.

I'm with you. He's a NUT that is causing a whole lot of hoopla that can be devasting. Just heard he's backed down. Thank goodness SOMEONE got to him!

My heart is with you and your family.

Terry Jones is not my friend either! And while I practice pacifism and pray for war to stop, I care deeply about our soldiers and those serving our nation (my brother toured with Tops In Blue during his time in the Air Force and my dad also served during Vietnam). It takes true strength to endure what you are experiencing right now. And reminding us that children of all faiths suffer unfairly makes you a hero too.

So beautifully put Jen. Thank you for your husbands service and your families sacrifice. I, for one, am eternally grateful ♥
