Children Of War

Updated: Feb 24

We have been living in a post 9/11 world for eighteen years. There are currently young men enlisting in the military who have known nothing but war-time their entire lives. An entire generation has never known peace.

Mothers are losing their sons. Wives are losing their husbands. Children are losing their fathers. Our children see nothing but violence on television. We are being told to hate our neighbors because of their ethnic background. We are being made to believe that bombings and shootings are a normal occurrences in every day life.

This is not ok. This is not healthy. This is not normal.

No one is winning. There is no exit strategy. There is no defined enemy. There is no end game. This is an investment with no return.

We have raised the student loan interest rates through the roof to pay for a war that we cannot afford. Meanwhile, our children are choosing to enlist in the military because they are bankrupt and can no longer afford to go to college. This has created a cycle of violence and abuse.

This is not ok. This is not healthy. This is not normal.

We owe it to our children to create a stronger and healthier community for them to live in.

God bless America. God bless our troops.
