Blogburst Against The Trolls

Scrolling through links today, in the midst of writing a new post, I noticed my co-blogger on The Wide Awakes Cao who writes at Cao's Blog is asking for support for Grey Eagle. Grey Eagle writes at A Female Soldier 2 and has been receiving a lot of troll comments dissing the service of those who have volunteered for the service, and as a result are serving in Iraq. Trolls are a true pest in the blogosphere, but may be a part of the price of freedom. However, we can all stand up to the trolls and we should. Grey Eagle has this to say:

To those who have not devoted as much energy to the destruction of this website and my rights, I do want to thank you for your continued support and the wonderful email I receive daily. I want you to know that not only I read your message, but many of the other soldiers here read them as well. As the holidays approach us and we are away from our families that means a lot more then you will ever know. A special thanks to PJ and the Web Of Support community for their wonderful care packages that have arrived (if you wish to give please contact them). It was like Christmas here as we opened our boxes of treats. We have also received care packages from other caring individuals and we appreciated them so much. Just to know that we are not alone, and the world has not turned against us and our efforts can be a very moving and powerful moment for us when we get our mail and our packages.

Finally, I wish to say that a soldier wounded from shrapnel awoke the other day after being unconscious from his wounds. His eyes are etched into my memory as he discovered he was alive, safe, and among his fellow soldiers. In that moment, I knew that everything I had sacrificed in my life, that this holiday season away from my husband and children, that the lack of sleep, the long days, and my personal sadness at times from the separation are worth it. Sometimes there are causes worth serving that are greater then ourselves.

Grey Eagle, Thanks!
