Peace and refuge

Poor Afghanistan has really suffered, and it’s now suffering worse than ever. The poor, the women, children, and old folks suffer the most because they have so little already and are so needy, so often they don’t survive. And the men go off to fight and often they don’t make it either. War is horrible
So in a way, the U.S. is reaping what it sowed in Afghanistan—war. The Afghans themselves are reaping what they’ve sowed in many ways. Now don’t get me wrong—there are many poor innocents in Afghanistan, and I’m not speaking of them. But the Afghans as a whole have been a lawless bunch of bandits for centuries, ruthless and bloodthirsty.
So both the U.S. and the Afghans are suffering for their sins, and the longer the U.S. keeps up this war, the more they’ll both suffer. Please pray for the innocent, the helpless and needy Afghans, that they can find peace and refuge from the war.
