  Obsessive Canonizing - 29 Aug 05
American Soldier

"I know that I will be sent back at some point. It is an inevitable fate that I gladly accept. I don’t know what it is. I cannot comprehend not serving. I just can’t grasp trying to avoid going back. I know it puts a burden on my family, it holds up my employer but dammit if it weren’t for willing Soldiers. Then all of this would not exist. We live in a time when people want to hurt all that we have. We haven’t had to defend our beloved country is years. It’s time to mount up and accept that this is not going away."
I just want you to know that although most of us are focused on the tragedy on the Gulf Coast, none of us have forgotten our incredible troops and what they've been going through on our behalf. That some of them who have just returned from Iraq are now deployed to New Orleans to deal with even more human suffering says volumes about their unbelievable dedication. Thank you to each and every one of you!!
