I know war is bad. I know war is wrong. Hell, war hurts. But here I am, and so are you, caught in the crosshairs of those who aim their hate at America and everything and everyone we love. Right now, our freedom, our people, our very beliefs, are being threatened in the streets of nearly every major city in the world. Hello, America, you listening?
These funerals are so much more than laying a soldier to rest. These are our husbands and wives, our sons and daughters, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, grandchildren ... these were our future doctors, teachers, lawyers, and our one-day neighbors and friends. These funerals bury so much more than soldiers, people. These are America's young, who gave up their hopes, their dreams, and all of their tomorrows to do what they felt was right. Thank them and show your respect by allowing their families to bury them in peace. Hello, America, you listening?
Take a few minutes, everyone. Thank a soldier, hug a vet. Put the focus where it belongs. You will never change anything by protesting -- you're only making things worse by being terrorists, too. Don't you see, there are better solutions? Far more can be accomplished by voting into office those who feel as you do. Change has to come from the top. "If you can't be part of the solution, at least don't be part of the problem ..."
God Bless America ... are you listening?
