Farris Hassan is the 16 year old who traveled to Iraq on his own volition. Here’s how he explains is trip:

“I thought I’d go the extra mile for that, or rather, a few thousand miles,” he told The Associated Press.

“There is a struggle in Iraq between good and evil, between those striving for freedom and liberty and those striving for death and destruction,” he wrote.

“Those terrorists are not human but pure evil. For their goals to be thwarted, decent individuals must answer justice’s call for help. Unfortunately altruism is always in short supply. Not enough are willing to set aside the material ambitions of this transient world, put morality first, and risk their lives for the cause of humanity. So I will.”

It’s no surprise that he is a member of a Republican Party club at school.

Now there’s Danielle Ansley (hat tip: Michelle). Her response to moonbat Mike Luckovich’s anti-war cartoon appears today in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. She explains why she did it:

The first time I saw Mike Luckovich’s drawing of the word “WHY?” made up of the names of 2,000 troops killed in Iraq, was when my mother was putting it up on our refrigerator. It bothered me that no one did a response showing how others feel. On Nov. 8, I got an updated list of the names of the war dead and started writing them, spelling out “FREEDOM”. Six days later, it was done. I only worked on it in my free time at school. It took me about 12 hours to get it done, so needless to say I devoted many of my classes to this, and stayed late after school to work on it. I didn’t take it home and show it to my mother until I had prints made. She and I have different views of things. She said that, as a mother, she didn’t like it that so many people have been killed. She was not happy when I placed my work next to Luckovich’s “WHY?” on the fridge, but it hasn’t been taken down. I may seem as if I am too young to have an opinion on matters like these. I am not saying that my opinion is right, for an opinion is just that’s someone’s views on something. But, like a child’s voice, an opinion is often not heard. DANIELLE ANSLEY Danielle, 17, of Fairburn, is an 11th-grader at Arlington Christian School.

I don’t know about you, but kids like this give me optimism about the future.
