A picture from Iraq

I got this in my e-mail today. I have no way to check the accuracy of the message but decided that it didn't need to be checked. The thought...the reality...of our American Sentiment, ideals and beliefs is shown clearly in this photo. LG

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head...but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.

He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.

This, my friends, is worth sharing with the WORLD! Go for it!! You'll never see things like this in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don't, but the American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we're doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time.

My recording of "Down the Road I'll Go", from my "Big Sky Dreams" CD, will be heard on Around the Campfire the week of November 10th. The show airs 6 times during the week.

To listen, go to and click on HPR2. After that click on "Schedule" to find out when the show airs in your time zone (all times posted are Central Standard Time.) Then select "Listen" to hear the show.

Thanks again for the great western music. And for helping keep the west wild! Marvin O'DellAround the
