From Baghdad With Love: a Marine, the War, and a Dog Named Lava
by Jay Kopelman & Melinda Roth
Of course, I loved this book. Not only is it about a dog, but it has a happy ending...
sort of...
When Jay Kopelman was sent to Iraq, he saw himself as a good Marine, just doing his job. After caring for Lava, Jay began to understand that many of the most prized traits of a good Marine could also be found in serial killers.
From Baghdad with Love clearly illustrates to me that even troops who return from Iraq physically whole, will be scarred in ways that can never be healed, leaving them with lasting moral and emotional injuries.
I hope you will read this book. Jay was blessed to find Lava, but what about all the others?
The art of Peace begins with you. Foster Peace in your own heart, and then apply it to every situation you encounter.
There is no way to Peace. PEACE IS THE WAY.
