calling the shots. War is a fact of life throughout the world 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I feel as if the U.S. has just lost her viginity. I and my parents came to the U.S. to get away from violence. I was born of French parents in the French colony of Algeria. We (the french ) were killed and tortured, my family lost everything they had. We (and many others) moved to the U.S. for a better life. Unfortunatly, you cannot escape violence!. We are all in shock, terror has violated our homes, our country, our lives. But, the U.S. is blessed of God and WILL survive. I believe our Country is stronger than these cowardly terrorists.....we will prosper, GOD help us all!
