An important photo... please share

Michael Yon - Thanks and PraiseIndependent military reporter and photographer Michael Yon is amazing.

His latest dispatch titled "Thanks and Praise" is not only a must-read, it's a must-share. He writes:
A Muslim man had invited the American soldiers from “Chosen” Company 2-12 Infantry to the church, where I videotaped as Muslims and Christians worked and rejoiced at the reopening of St John’s, an occasion all viewed as a sign of hope.

The Iraqis asked me to convey a message of thanks to the American people. "Thank you, thank you," the people were saying. One man said, “Thank you for peace.” Another man, a Muslim, said “All the people, all the people in Iraq, Muslim and Christian, is brother.” The men and women were holding bells, and for the first time in memory freedom rang over the ravaged land between two rivers.
A picture certainly is worth a thousand words. Please share this and support Michael if you can.

DayByDay on Iconic Photographs

As Bryan over at HotAir points out... we're winning in Iraq, wouldn’t you think this news would be big enough to warrant better placement than page A19? Not for the New York Times.
