War’s costs too high

This letter is to The Union, but to the President of the United States in particular.

Dear President:

When you started this war, did you even think about all the grief you would cause? All of our young men and women who would be killed or maimed for life? All of the women, children and innocent men who would be killed in a country we invaded? In a country that doesn’t even want us there?

And now that you’ve caused this horrendous action, and calling yourself a Christian, you now want to cut money from our educational system, further harming our youth. And cut from our health care to the elderly, children and the poorest of our citizens because of the expense of this unjust war.

What happened to the country’s whose leaders I was taught to love and respect?
