Tears of Bitter Irony

(follow the blue links)

I'm as patriotic as the next person but.......

While we were saying our prayers and laying our wreaths to remember our war dead....




Fallen Generation

This was happening in Basra....



Boat Blast

and so it goes on...........

yeah so sad. i'm patriotic too, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be critical of the way our beloved country and our forces are being run.

it means we should care more really about making things right.

nice post sweetie. though heartbreaking.
amazing wreath.

i hope you are feeling better too babe.

To speak against the war does not mean one does not support and is thankful to those troops that continue to fight....and to be attending services honoring those who fought while decrying more senseless deaths in a senseless war is not unpatriotic, my dear---not at all, to my way of thinking....And it does go on and on and on and on, sad to say...

Nicely put. I wish more of us took the time to reflect on what this means, and on how we will improve our planet's ability to be better citizens of this universe.
