"Why did my son have to die in Afghanistan?"

A mother asked President George W. Bush...
"Why did my son have to die in Iraq?"

A mother asked President Clinton...
"Why did my son have to die in Saudi Arabia?"

A mother asked President George H.W. Bush...
"Why did my son have to die in Kuwait?"

Another mother asked President Lyndon B. Johnson...
"Why did my son have to die in Vietnam?"

Another mother asked President Harry S. Truman...
"Why did my son have to die in Korea?"

Another mother asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt...
"Why did my son have to die on Iwo Jima?"

Another mother asked President Woodrow Willson...
"Why did my son have to die on a battlefield on a field in France?"

Yet another mother asked President Abraham Lincoln...
"Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"

And yet another mother asked President George Washington...
"Why did my son have to die on a frozen field near Valley Forge?"

Then long, long ago, a mother asked our Heavenly Father...
"Why did my Son have to die on a cross outside of Jerusalem?"

The answer is the same...

"So that others may have life and dwell in peace, happiness, and freedom."

This was emailed to me with no author.
