Giving Thanks (Lest we Forget)
The following from my son:
* Let us all rise, those of us who are able, during a time when life is a little bit unstable. Lest we forget, those who have served. The utmost respect--do they all deserve. During World War One, we were all strong. From World War Two, freedom followed along. We fought in Korea, our flag proudly flew high. We brought freedom to those folks, yet no one questioned why. Vietnam was a twist, with our draft dodgin' boys, but still we brought those people, a touch of freedom joys.
Our military has fought and died from the beginning. A death of honor. A life fought to bring freedom and peace to the folks here and abroad. In Iraq because of oil, I think not. Remember folks, Saddam 'The Dictator' killing the Kurds, his own people with chemical weapons. Oh, that's right, no weapons of mass destruction were found. Ha! And lest we forget veterans are offered a hand (not a hand out) when they are down and out.
I guess it is true, that people today don't give a damn about honoring our surviving veterans and those who have passed from prior wars. And thus they don't really give a damn about what our freedom cost. I can't understand people who don't have the ability to back the war effort, by supporting our president in his fight for freedom across the globe. Lest we forget September 11? The troops that are dieing, are dieing in part because of all the crap of the U.S. not supporting as a whole what they are doing in Iraq.
Hey folks! If you believe in what the troops are doing, then we on the home front should do the same and show our support. *Remember: United we stand, divided we fall. A fight for freedom, for us all.*
And what about weapons of mass destruction not being found? I seem to recall satellite photos of truckload after truckload being driven out of Iraq before the invasion. You remember, when the U.N. was dragging its feet (hats off to the U.N.). Oh, that must have been truckloads of cotton candy and sodie pop. Yeah, that's a better story to tell.
Peace, and God bless us one and all.
