Thanks for that gut-wrenching article on Gen. John F. Kelley on the indifference of the American people to the war in Afghanistan - a war in which only 1 percent of the U.S. citizenry are affected.
I started reading the article to my wife and had difficulty getting through it. I finally took a break when he related how he had to wake his wife and “break her heart” with the news of their son’s death.
How many more hearts need to be broken with news of death or injury to a loved one before we exit this war which cannot be won? The general said he didn’t mind dissenters if they do something like get our troops home.
How do we do this?
Never miss a local story.
Maybe by encouraging our media to concentrate on this tragedy rather than an apparently sick Charlie Sheen. Maybe by asking President Barack Obama to meditate on how difficult it would be for him to wake his beautiful wife Michelle and “break her heart.”
We should reflect on how difficult it would be for us to do the same. Pray, pray, pray.
