6-6-05 – Sherman attorney Roger Sanders spent ten days in Iraq as a member of a Christian Peacemaker Team in late May. While there, Roger spread the word of peace while seeing first hand what life is like in Iraq.
Sanders took the trip since he believes in peace and that in can be achieved through non-violent alternatives.
Roger says the attitude towards America has taken a turn for the worse since the beginning of the occupation two years ago, and there is an almost uniform desire for America to leave.
However, Sanders also said the morale amongst the American troops he saw was high and they believe in their purpose.
