INSPIRING EMAIL FROM VICTOR IN IRAQ!

It has been a busy weekend but I had to stop to post this before I ran out the door....AREN'T OUR GUYS & GALS AWESOME! Don't you wonder why we don't see this stuff on the evening news or in our daily papers? Why don't you write your editor & ask em.....I did.

Hello Everyone:

I'm sending some more pictures of the cookie sale. They raised $2600(US) that day (4hrs). Not bad. They have a swimming event and some other sport camps coming up. I'll see which I can help out with.I know the children for this council are all from Baghdad from different groups (Sunni and Shite). I am not sure of their economic background. I know they don't have to buy the uniforms you see them in (they are provided by the scouts) and I am sure the program is open to all that are able to come forward (maybe not from the more dangerous parts of Baghdad...yet).

The times did a story on the clean-up I sent pictures of:
