Will this be Christians’ last Easter in Iraq? – CNN.com

Will this be Christians’ last Easter in Iraq? – CNN.com.

This article is straight forward and very real.  For many Christian communities here in the United States ISIS and the war in the Middle East don’t touch them directly.  I go to a church where relatives have died from bombings in Iraq, Syria, and other places.  These friends lost family members – mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, brothers, uncles and aunts – from the ISIS “threat”.  These families have been Christians for hundreds of years and are being wiped out.

Recently I read an article reminding me of what it must have been like for Nazi Germany and the Jewish death camps.  The article said, “If this was really happening, Wouldn’t there be pictures?”  Just as in Nazi Germany, Turkey has taken steps to outlaw Twitter and other social media.  Why would they do this if there wasn’t something they didn’t want the world to see and their citizens and visitors to share with said world?

It is time for Christians to stand together here in America for our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Middle East.


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
