I have a brother-in-law in the Marine unit that had a helicopter crash today in Iraq. Three are reported killed, one hurt. We don't know yet about Dave. Even if he is alright, there are 3 families grieving. We're hoping and praying for all concerned and would appreciate if any have a spare thought for them.

May those who have died find joy in the Presence of God. May those who are unaccounted for be in the Palm of His Hand. May He safeguard the innocents afflicted by this war and its repurcussions.

May the Spirit guide our leaders and those of all of the nations directly or indirectly involved in making this war to bring it to a swift conclusion. May He grant peace and freedom to us all.

Thank you all for your prayers and kindness. From what little we've heard, my brother-in-law is OK. But the sorrow for the soldiers who have died and the children and civilians hurt, or killed and terrified is very great.
