Senseless and Shameful

I write today both angry and sad. Yesterday, the number of dead American soldiers in Afghanistan reached 1,000. That means 1,000 less brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, and children. All in the name of what? Protecting freedom? Building schools? Fighting a war tactic? These young people are dying in vain for a cause which is not what our government makes it out to be — a worthless cause in an unwinnable conflict.

Help stop the bloodshed.

Contact your local representatives and demand immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan. Also, if anyone you know is considering joining the military, try with all your might to convince them not to. After all, it could be the last conversation you ever have with them.
