A Letter

As most know who read this blog that I am from a Military family and have family in the military still. I read THIS POST over at Ogre's View and wanted to share it with you.

Here is part of the letter to Cindy Sheehan from Brantley Smith:

I am sure you believe that you are serving some great cause by putting our servicemen and women in more danger and that you can, by your irresponsible exercise of free speech, help end a policy you disagree with. Your emotion may be compelling but the reality is that you will not set in motion any process that will change or undo what has been done. The war will go on because to end it now would dishonor the sacrifice of all of our fellow countrymen who have died in the cause of fighting terrorism. Rational Americans will not allow that. Too much is at stake.

Go read it.

Thanks for linking. I hadn't been over to ogre's in a while (due to that stupid horizontal scrolling thing he used to have). Loved the letter.

Stupid? Why, I resemble that remark... ;)

I know, not many people liked it. Maybe you'll like the next change even more...
