Put away your labels,
I will do the same.
Meet me in the aisle
Truth is why we came.

I watched the smiles upon the faces
Of those who’ve risked their lives
To feel the joy of freedom
For which all humanity strives.

Teach us all the lesson
That with courage, walls are felled.
In seeing their bravery, their smiles
My heart, my joys have swelled.


Remember: this was written by a liberal! It is not about left or right, wrong or right, but about truth. Today, this is a joyous truth!

"Aisle of Truth" strikes thoughts for Justice. It is an enjoyable and stimulating composition.

Healthier be the eyes that read and convey the images to the mind.

It was truly like watching the eyes of a newborn open for the very first time.
They embraced a world they had never known, and let the seed of smiles and joy blossom far beyond their own land. It was through the lens of cameras that caught the Glories of Freedom.
One elderly woman, that had to struggle for the english words, with smiles large, and a single tear on her cheek, stood before an American Soldier, and mustered the words, Thank You. With the greatest of pride, she then held up her ink stained finger, and gave him a gracious embrace.
It was that very moment, that one camera shot, should have educated the entire universe, on just how much of a difference, the sacrifices that our Forces and the Coaliton Forces have made for the people of Iraq.
What a glorious and exciting day for Democracy, and birth of a future for a Delivered People!
Thank You Katy!

Bravo..Today an historic event took place...the first step ever toward freedom in a land where tyranny has ruled for thousand of years. A land that may become a potential stronghold against the extremist murderers that threaten the lives of innoccents. But do not do away with labels, for there are those who had hoped all would have resulted in chaos. For the time being they have remained silent and we can only hope that they learn from the lesson "That with courage, walls are felled."

And the truth has set them free. Great poem and message. We should all be praying that freedom and Democracy takes place in Iraq. The sooner they take charge, the sooner our heroes can return home knowing that their sacrifice freed this country from a tyrant and gave the Iraqi people their freedom and Country back.

Well Katy it does not matter like you said because it was a heart warming thing to watch them. I am so glad for them truly.

Excellent Katy, only here in England, to many lead a superficial unattractive life.

Freedom is in the heart...
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 1/30/2005
It certainly is a joyous truth, Katy. Freedom is never free and there will always be those who stand on both sides of the argument of how it can be achieved. Today is not a day to be talking about the argument, but about the result. I am so proud of every Iraqi who showed the bravery to take the first step to change their fate. By casting their vote, they are sending a message to the insurgents that they will not be controlled by them, that they are united against the insurgency. It also says that they are ready to do whatever is necessary to form a country that embraces freedom and to create a future for their children. This is not the end of the difficult times for Iraq, but it is the closure of the first chapter. I am proud of all who made this a possibility and humbled by the bravery of the Iraqi people.
Take care,
