Is it possible to support your troops and advocate peace at the same time?
I had someone tell me a couple of days ago "You are contradicting yourself by wearing a yellow ribbon and a peace sign! You can't support our troops while advocating peace! That makes no sense!" I told him that as long as there are radical extremists out there who think nothing of killing innocents to further their cause, we need our troops and I will do what I can to support them in their very dangerous mission. But at the same time I hope and pray for peace. I don't think that is a contradiction at all. In fact, I can't think of a better way than peace to keep our troops out of harms way! So... Advocating Peace is supporting our troops! :)
