We continue to live in a very dangerous world.
Radicals, terrorism growing in numbers around the world and the Middle East almost to the point of boiling over to a major conflict to an outright war.
From wars past to the present, American soldiers continue to lose their lives in countries where their enemies hide in the shadows, caves and behind women and children.
Then you look at the drug war that is costing many people their lives.
Countries like Afghanistan, Mexico and Colombia continue to ship their poison to our streets, schools and workplaces.
