Moore, 34, now of Saranac Lake, grew up in Tully. During his 10 months in Iraq, Moore sent home several dispatch- es, some of which appeared in The J T T J.JLV talked about his experiences patrolling the streets of Samarra, befriending Iraqi families, missing his own wife. Jennifer, and sons, Easton, 6, and Marshal, 3, and losing comrades in arms. Now, Moore reflects on arriving home, surprising his sons at school, and adjust- ing to a new daily routine without sand- bag bunkers or armed guards on rooftops. The roar of the silence There are no longer generators run- ning. The roar of the silence is deafening. The gentle breaths released from the per- fect lips of my sons is now what I hear at night. The same lips that I cannot kiss enough. The same lips that make my eyes fill with tears and my heart flutter every time they touch my cheeks. Our final day at Fort Drum was hectic and my release time came earlier than ex- pected. So, when I pulled into my drive- way at noon, the house was empty. I dropped my bags inside and walked alone through the rooms soaking in the sounds and smells and images that had been only a memory nours before. My oldest son's first-grade teacher had been wonderful to me while I was away. even though we had never met. She sent me updates and pictures via e-mail al- most weekly. So when I popped my head into the classroom door she came running out and gave me my first "welcome home" hug of the day. "Easton is up practicing a song.

By Peter Lyman Staff writer Bundled up against a biting wind, tens of thousands of dem- onstrators including a group of Central New Yorkers stood in the Monday and listened to President Bush congratulate culture of life, to promote com- passion for women and their un- born babies." Many Central New Yorkers were in Washington for the an- nual March for Life by oppo- nents of abortion. The event marked the 32nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling, which overturned state laws against abortion. Bush's re-election and the election of larger Republican majorities in Congress have en- ergized the movement, say activ- ists who want to see Roe over- turned. With several vacancies possible on the aging Supreme Court in the next four years, the likelihood of a swing away from legalized abortion improves, they believe. Speaking to the demonstrators by telephone from Camp David, Bush was cheered as he ticked off a list of accomplishments irom ms fn'M term: a biui cci- tain late-term abortions, legal protection for doctors and nurses who refuse to participate in abor- tions, establishment of legal sta- tus for a fetus who is harmed in an attack on a pregnant woman.

Kamal, a truck driver, was on his way to the city of Medan a 12-hour drive from this provincial capital when the tsunami hit Dec. 26. Rina Augustina was home with her mother, her two sisters, and her uncle. Her uncle held her and her 12-year-old sister as they tried to out- ran the wall of water.
