Hello my friends,
This feels like a social issue, so I am going to drop this here. Mod of course feel free to move where ever is nec.
As many of you know, my daughter just got deployed for a year to Kawiat. Yes I have the mother ,"Oh no's" about it, but that is not what I'm
posting here for.
I am posting for the little girl that thought she had friends and shared her heart to defend them till her dying breath as many of us did when we were
of that delicate age of "The Ugly Teens". Friends always trumped family. Seems we have all had a bit of a soldiers heart to defend what we love.
Once it is called war, well for some, it changes there on semantics, but I digress.
I wish to address in the only way I know how at the moment, a situation that is surrounding me. Let me say for the record, I am not one for drama,
much less the drama of my childs life... Im a big dog now and know how to avoid it... or so I thought.
Yes, my daughter was struggling with her teen years... getting a little lost on the "Accepted Path" ( geee I can relate if I were honest about it),
but with a lot of courage, she tried to make a change for the better and decided to join the National Guard. Was she running away from something?
Maybe, but that's not for me to answer, that is for her to know.
The point is she did it, she believed in what she was doing, she discovered self respect. Any soldier here reading this knows I don't have to go in
depth to explain that.
To make a long story short... Last thing she heard from her lover..." I hope you die and yada yada yada." Really too ugly to tell it all. What????
YOU SAY? yep. feel the love there???
The one that was really disappointing to me though was this one. Now mind you, this is one my daughter would go to great lengths to be there for, her
considered friend. Just a small clip of the convo she had to read the day after she left.
First my daughters response to nonsense I wont bore you with. You'll get the gist I'm sure:
I would loooove to see ppl do what i do...but u cant....so go ahead and sit at home and make your COFFEE..ha! cuz if it wasnt for ppl like me and my
"national gaurds men" u wouldnt be able to....so enjoy the life u make for ur self...while us "children" shoot the big boy guns....so enjoy that
freedom of urs....cuz this... is all I have....and its better then what ever you'll EVER have....
Obviously someone said something stupid. Now you want to see something more stupid? The response:
LOL "SHoot big boy guns" that's what being a soldier is about?!?!?1 LOL Figures...STILL HAVENT LEARNED #...just on a stupid pedestal...what's
funny is that you've already almost been discharged due to shooting an M16 at a fellow comrade....sounds like you've learned alot about protection
and being a good person...LOL RIIIIIIIGHT
Is this for real? A old friend saying this to someone that is trying to make a difference for them? I soooo feel for any other soldiers that have had
to go through this?Does this happen on a regular occurrence?
Well of course the momma in me, even though Im not a fan of war etc, I still support my troops because they are all our children stepping up on all
sides for what they think is right, regardless of who its for or what its about, they stand so I dont have too, just couldn't let this go....
So, this is my response to the whole disrespectful mess:
(try and keep in mind this is a facebook posting)
oh dear I just can't help myself. speaking of big guns... do real big dogs count too for this convo? lets break this down...
"STILL HAVENT LEARNED #$%#."
I dont think I would want to learn "$#%^" I'd much rather learn something that brings me personal pride and joy. Might explain my "stupid
Next," what's funny is that you've already almost been discharged due to shooting an M16 at a fellow comrade."
Hmmm, you've been damn near put in the hospital by your fellow comrade, aka "lover" how many times now and still go back?
Next,"sounds like you've learned a lot about protection and being a good person...LOL RIIIIIIIGHT.
Sounds like you didn't learn anything about this person when if you really knew her,you'd have known this person before being a soldier would have
protected you to the death if it was needed to be. That's how much this Now Soldiers Heart,stands for the ones she loves and considers friends and
No matter how you slice it, a Good person would not slap a soldier going off into the unknown. That is a insult to any and all soldiers from all over
the world, no to mention very Un American.Might actually piss people off.
To think a past friend can only think to insult someone who may believe in your right for freedom and will stand up for it for you ( so you can insult
them of course) ugh!!!
Me thinks someone else has only learned "$#@%",
Has never talked to the caterpillar on the pedestal,
Hasn't learned from their mistakes,
and Totally fails in learning a "Good Person" would always know when they have a good friend through the good the bad the ugly. It doesn't
matter, A good person would always be supportive.
Bless our Troops and Their GOOD HEARTS and STRENGTH to know, sadly this is something they may die for. A persons right to learn $#%&.
Now back to your regular program...
