The Enduring Evil of an Unjust War

Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

Carlos Arrendondo and his wife Victoria are still trying to absorb the loss of their son, Brian, who took his own life on December 19. Brian, 24, had been left inconsolable and incurably depressed by the death of his older brother, Alexander, a Marine who was killed in Iraq in 2004.

At the time Carlos learned of Alexander?s death in Iraq, the family lived in Hollywood, Florida. When he received a visit from a Marine Corps ?Casualty Assistance Team,? Carlos suffered an epic breakdown.

Momentarily deranged, Carlos went into his garage and grabbed a container of gasoline and a welding torch, which he used to set the Marine Casualty Assistance Team?s van on fire ? igniting himself in the process. Fortunately, the Marines were able to extinguish the flames and get Carlos medical attention.

Three years later, during  an anti-war protest in Washington, D.C., Carlos was surrounded by pro-war counter-protesters, beaten, and kicked, after one of them had presumptuously seized a photograph of Alexander that Carlos had brought to illustrate his family?s loss in that stupid and senseless war ? which continues to inflict death and misery, despite being officially ?over.?

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
