Finding solutions

I hear and see a lot of negativity about the war; I’ve got my share of things that I don’t agree with.

I was never a military man, but I would bet that many of our soldiers are fairly bent to see so many Americans spending so much energy expressing their disapproval of this war. I would like to see a positive solution with every one of those anti-war bumper stickers or comments from politicians.

I know I’d have a lot less hope while sitting in the desert getting shot at if I had all those negative things rolling around in my head than I would if I believed that everyone in my country was putting their heads together to get me out of there, that the process was worthwhile.

Having an opinion is one of this country’s fine attributes, but running one’s mouth without a good solution isn’t.
