Support our Military, Not Our War
Here is some food for thought: People often believe that in order to support our troops, you have to be completely in support of the war. But who is really completely in support of the war, anyway? Do we need to be at war? Here is something to consider instead: You can be completely in support of the United States military, all branches and all soldiers, without actually believing in whatever the war is about, or without actually supporting the war effort at all.
How you feel about the war is ultimately up to you to decide, but this is the food for thought: Do your feelings about the war have to impact how you feel about the troops? Can you be completely, 100 percent in support of the soldiers that are over there fighting for us without being completely 100 percent in support of the war? Of course you can. So tuck away your feelings about the fighting, and focus all of your attention on those who are fighting. Our sons and daughters, our sisters and brothers, our mothers and fathers are all overseas and they are being heroes because that’s who they are and that’s what they do. Let’s focus on what really, truly matters: The heroes of our country, that will do anything to defend us, because they are all that really matters, they are all that really should matter. Keep this in mind and it may completely change how you feel about the war in general.
