I think its a pretty sad state of affairs, and many times I wonder if any positive change can come about when it seems that noone even gives a shit about any one or anything.
People arent even commenting on this blog.
People look down on me in judgement, even had one woman say that "The veterans are doing just fine".
Another guy, in a flag emblazoned Corvette "This what I got for being a vet"
I was in front of a recruiting station looking at all the posters, and a father was telling his son that he should join the military "Because it is BAD ASS and when you get out you can have a BADASS car".
They looked at me, and he tells his kid "You don't want to end up like that guy, do you?" and I said, "I am a veteran of the US Army sir, your boy just might end up like me, or worse, if he even makes it back home."
Of course I gave him a flyer, and he said, "No thanks".
I will not give up the fight against war and militarism. I seem to care more about other peoples children and the planet than 99% of Americans.
Yet, am I the 1%?
