I received this in the mail and loved it. I thought to pass it on, here goes:

There was a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.
So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let
 everyone know what an American is . So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

'An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish ,
 Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican,
 African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or
 Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

 An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho,
 Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native
Americans.
An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim.
In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan . The only
 difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them
 chooses.

 An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will
 answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to
 speak for the government and for God.

 An American lives in the most prosperous land in  the history of the
 world.

 The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of
 Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

 An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other
 nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

 When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans
 came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their
country
 As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other
 nation to the poor in Afghanistan ....

The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your
 tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the
 homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America

 Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11 ,
 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the
 World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries,
cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the
 terrorists.

 So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General
 Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in
 the world.. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself . Because
 Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are
 the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that
spirit, everywhere, is an American.

O Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may ever invoke thy most powerful name,
 which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying.
 O loving Mother,  let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips.
Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me whenever I call on thee, for, in all my needs, in all my temptations I shall never cease to call on thee, ever repeating thy sacred name, Mary, Mary...

I've visited shrines in the mountains. There's something to the atmosphere.. not just the air, but spiritually.

And there is Mount Carmel.

Quote
The reason, then, why some spiritual persons never enter perfectly into the true joys of the spirit is that they never succeed in raising their desire for rejoicing above these things that are outward and visible.

'When the evil conduct of one person begins to affect others, you should not show long-suffering; and instead of your own advantage you should seek that of the others, so that they may be saved. For virtue involving many people is more valuable than virtue involving only one.'

St. Mark the Ascetic

The fighting makes for acts of virtue that are beautiful before God in Heaven and on earth!
