Day 12



I was going to complain on this blog. I think I have a pinched nerve & it is bothersome to say the least & I was going to complain. But I just opened an email about out our troops in Iraq & the inconvenience & discomfort seems miniscule now. They don't get the day off if they are in pain...they must keep going just to stay alive. With the exception of doing things for the kids, I got to sit around & try to heal. The troops are amazing men...I have no idea how they do what they do. They leave their families behind to fight for MY freedoms. They miss the birth of their children...they miss little league games & their sister's wedding. They don't get to call in sick or miss work because of a bad hair day.
I don't understand people that say there is no need for war...have they forgotten 9/11? I don't like war either...it is a horrible loss of life but unfortunately it must exist. There will always be terrorists. There will always be evil. There will always be people who think they can take over the world so the need to go to war will always be there. If we didn't defend our great nation then we would be living under someone like Sadaam or Kim Jong, afraid to even go to the mailbox. We should support our troops & our PRESIDENT even if we don't agree with them.

Stepping down from my soapbox now...have a great evening.
