let’s take a moment to think about the leaves drifting by our windows, sipping warm cider to defrost our bones from the crisp Autumn chill that arrives this time of year. Protected in our cozy nest with most of us taking time off this Veterans Day, are we doing what we can for those who sign up to make ominous sacrifices for us to enjoy our peaceful existence.
Whether on board with the strategic military policies du jour or not, our camaraderie for our past, present and future troops should not be egregiously overlooked.
Whether we should be still trotting on foreign lands is not an American question; it’s a humanitarian question. The problems are always the same–well documented in history as far back to antiquity. No need to seek out a political oracle, unfortunately it’s all about cold-blooded, power hungry warlords or in the case of Troy, about love.
Our troops are thrown into shambolic situations with moldering uniforms not knowing what’s lurking around the bend but always having to anticipate their next move. Our last line of defense creates confusion but they fight on, what can they do? It’s not a job…it’s a call of duty, a sacrifice so grave it’s not easy to recover from this abysmal path.
Let’s commemorate our bold survivors that hang on to hope and do as they are told. We’re in it together aren’t we..one for all and all for one-it’s certainly not the recipe for body and mind clarity, but it’s the reality we’re currently living. Isn’t it worth trying to heal from the philistine situation they find themselves trapped in. Let us lend a hand. How to provide assistance in their current mission.
