A quick rant

It is the day after Memorial Day and I feel the need to get this off my chest. If you chose Memorial Day as the day to make a statement against the military then you need to take a hard look at your morals and your life. Reality check: The soldiers do not make policy, the people YOU elect and re-elect do, and even if “I didn’t vote for him/her” or “I didn’t vote” YOU still were an active participant in choosing who makes our nation’s decisions. Memorial Day is a day to remember FALLEN soldiers, NOT a day for you to flex your internet muscles with (not-so) witty banter about “unjust” this and “disagree with” that. Oh and another thing, any soldier who refers to himself/ herself as a “hero” is 99% of the time a faker! Soldiers are probably some of the most humble people you will ever meet about what THEY did. Try talking to a veteran, you will rarely hear any personal tales of heroics, you will hear about camaraderie and missed friends. You will hear things about fear, regret, pain, loss, pride, loyalty, sacrifice, and other things that are very un-heroic. Others have labeled soldiers “heroes” for various reasons, some are to honor them others are purely for marketing.

But how to initiate the change? Continue reading
