Meet Floridian Farris Hassan, 16

This story about a sixteen year old who used his savings and his Christmas break from school to travel to Iraq is a must read. This kid has serious couilles, not to mention clarity of vision, and he can write better than most college graduates, too.
"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."
Perfect. (I'd say Farris is grounded for quite a while though.)
