There may not be a way to win anymore. 911 may have already divided our nation beyond repair over the resulting loss of civil rights vs. safety,
regardless of true intention. Since that tragedy, however, we can be certain there are far more battles won behind the scenes and out of view against
the terrorists and other “enemies” of the United States than we will ever know about. The extension of that thought is to take a moment every once
in a while to pay homage to unseen, unknown, and forever unheralded heroes who have therefore given the ultimate sacrifice for us knowing their
actions will never be publicly disclosed and honored. This is in addition to the thousands of service men and women and law enforcement individuals
who may not even believe in the reason they are where they are, yet they still give their lives.
So now someone in power such as N. Korea’s Kim is blatant enough to declare that he deems my family and I unworthy of living. Why? For reasons we
and the VAST majority of those he is “targeting” will never understand, know, or agree with. Whatever his dislike for our country, I am
comfortable believing I had nothing to do with it. In fact, if he would peer over his hate-colored glasses and actually take the time to meet almost
any of us, he might be surprised to find we may even agree with him. At least, as already mentioned, he would likely find we don’t support the
factions of our country or government that has created whatever the perceived problem is.
In war, how many people are responsible for starting it? All it takes is one. If there are a dozen, that’s not enough. In a nation of 300 million,
do I really have to point out what a miniscule percentage of our population wants to be killed or see other innocent people killed just because a few
dozen (or as few as one or two) leaders can't get along?
Maybe I haven’t made sense, but the bottom line is this. I haven’t done anything to anyone in N. Korea, nor has anyone there done anything to my
family and I…yet. Why can’t it stay that way?
