THANK YOU


On this Memorial Day 2005, I just want to say "THANK YOU" to the men and women who have served and continue to serve in our military. To these individuals who serve to protect my freedom, I am greatly appreciative.
One of the things in life I will never understand is war. From the beginning of time, it seems that men have always been warring with each other. Someone wants what someone else has, and he gathers armies to take it. The other man goes on the defensive to protect what is his. Thousands, living meaningful day -to -day lives with family and friends, go into battle and drop one by one until enough men on one side have dropped and that side "gives up", and the victor either gets what he wants or the loser looses what was his. It just seems so worthless. But, I guess it is one of those necessary evils of life because it always seems there will be another who wants what we have.
No, I don't understand it, but I am grateful to those who have protected my freedom throughout the years. To those who give me the right to say, "FUCK you George Bush! Fuck you for sending our troops to die in your political war," I am thankful. And I just want to say thatI DO NOT support the war in Iraq, but my support goes out to every man and woman serving in Iraq and elsewhere.
THANK YOU!
