Iraqi artist Kalat makes statue of US soldier...

We should all hear about this and pass it on...



DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? WHERE THIS IS?



THE STATUE





This statue
currently stands outside the Iraqi palace,
Now home to the 4th Infantry division.

It will
eventually be shipped home

And put in the
memorial museum inFort Hood,TX

The statue
was created by
an Iraqi
artist named Kalat,
who for years was forced by
Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds
of bronze busts of Saddam that dottedBaghdad.

Kalat was so
grateful for the Americans liberation of his country;
He melted 3 of the heads of the fallen
Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American soldiers
and their fallen
warriors.

Kalat
worked on this memorial night and day for several months.

To the left of the
kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the
loss of his comrade in arms.

Do you
know why we don't hear about this in the news?

Because it
is heart warming
and
praise worthy..

The media
avoids it because it does not have the shock effect.

But we
can do something about it.

We can
pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave
military who are making a difference.


And
please pass this on!
