Karma Lesson

Today’s story demonstrating the age-old concept of "you get what you give" comes to us from Iraq. I’ll summarize for those of you who don’t click links. A Marine convoy came upon a little girl in the middle of the road holding a teddy bear. She wouldn’t move for them. The Marines started to go around her. One of the Marines recognized the girl, because he had given her the bear. He stopped the convoy and got out to talk to her. She then showed the Marine what she had been blocking: a mine that had been placed in the roadway. Payback isn’t always a bitch, despite what some of us have learned.

There’s a lot of blather about how we’re creating the next generation of terrorists by being in Iraq. Looks to me like we’re also helping create the next generation of heroes.

H/t Blackfive.
