I was watching the news tonight, and saw the latest released list of people who passed away in our “valiant fight” over in Iraq….and it just took my breath away and made me totally sick to my stomach. These were young people who were as old as THIRTY and as young as NINETEEN! They barely had a chance to LIVE, and now they have died. These were people who went into the service thinking they were going to have a chance to make a difference, and what happened? They chopped their life expectancy down by a DRASTIC margin!
I’m going to say it again……THEY DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE TO LIVE!
I’ll be rejoicing the day our young people come home once again – those who survived the holocaust that this war brought on our next generation anyway. I just hope the sacrifice of our nations young men & women was worth it in the end…….I really do.
