I kinda see war as "dirty work." Kinda like trash-collecting, the stuff nobody else wants to do. And that can't be disputed.
That said, I personally don't care for the cause at hand. However, I truly appreciate what our men and women in uniform not just in Iraq, but around
the world, are doing. They don't do it because it's the greatest job in the world. They do it because somebody has to do it. Not many people
understand that on BOTH sides of the issue.
I just simply see it as something that is, something that has to be done by somebody, and I am proud that these people have stepped up and taken that
risk to be "the one."
I don't plan for things to change, but I just wish everybody on both sides would see the humanity and even all the crap in this awful situation so we
can all truly appreciate what these people have to go through. There is nothing pleasant about it and they deserve all our gratitude and then some for
being the ones to do it for us.
Whether you believe in the cause or not, somebody would have to do it. I'm glad it's them and I will always be one step right behind them.
