It is written
No retreat, no surrender: Iraq the Model describes a news video he watched, whose copy he is seeking, showing an Iraqi policeman standing fast in the path of an oncoming car bomb until he detonated it with AK-47 fire, killing the bomber and himself.
As the vehicle passes through the gate and past the last barricade all of the officers run away seeking shelter…except for one extraordinary man. One police officer held his position and was still standing in the way of the terrorist and kept on firing his rifle at the windshield until the vehicle was just meters from the officer, then…BOOM.
Whether or not the world makes any sense, individual acts do. They can create meaning in themselves, at least for those whose lives are changed by them. Faith, even for agnostics, lies in believing that in some way it is all worthwhile. For those whose lives this policeman saved, that at least is true.
So I be written in the Book of Love
I do not care about that Book above.
Erase my name or write it as you will,
So I be written in the book of Love.
