1. Thanks sis
I was telling my wife last night how my older brother never was the same as he was before going to Vietnam. I lost my brother at 60 a couple of months ago-he was a soldier, he suffered from PTSD and he was my hero and I fucking miss him and I hate that this war is going to do the same to thousands and thousands of other younger brothers like me who lose their hero older brothers-I will vote for Barack Obama so my about to become 15 year old son James NEVER has to fight in a useless war-like his Uncle Wayne did

2. My sentiments exactly. "We must"
Only this week I was mulling over Barack's campaign slogan "Yes we can"

And it occured to me independent of this post that "We must".

I would imagine there are great numbers of people who would agree with that statement.

Thank you babylonsister for this excellent and thoughtful piece. O8)
