American Christians Could Learn from the Marines of Iwo Jima
On the beaches of Iwo Jima, the mortality rate was the highest for any
battle in Marine Corps history. Entire batallions were wiped out, some
experiencing 75% casualties. Men were cut into pieces. Many suffered
unimaginable pain and were wounded with little hope of survival.
But even under the worst circumstances, the men of the United States
Marine Corps (with the aid of heroic Navy Corpsman) were 100% committed to
rescuing every man, regardless of injury or life potential. They were
committed to recovering every body, even at great risk to the living.
Every life (and every body) was precious, regardless of injury or hope of
survival of the wounded.
Terri Schiavo committed no crime and never stood trial. But, because of

in her death and a politically
motivated probate judge, she was executed in a cruel and unusual manner,
and without legitimate process of law, contrary to the United States and
