Today is going to be a rant. But I will try to keep it clean.
Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. And what did the media choose to cover? Anti-war protestors.
I'm all about free speech and the right to assemble, but you gotta ask yourself, why? Do these people really think they will stop the war?
I have a simple and productive idea for these people - instead of protesting the war, how about supporting our troops? Start a letter drive, a get together supplies to send overseas, do anything. Your wasted energy on protesting could be put into something that helps everyone.
My brother constantly asks for small toys to hand out to the children in Iraq. Why not pool together some money and send these to our troops? How about getting together to pray for the troops and their safe return? The power of prayer is amazing, and can do a lot more than protesting that falls on deaf ears.
And let's not forget our troops in Afghanistan and other countries. They need our support and prayers just as much as any other Soldier.
God Bless Our Troops.
