30. I don't know how much of this I can take.
I can't stop crying and thinking and crying and thinking. I'd first like to say thank you to all our dead service men. These men that lost their lives over the wants and needs of overs or for the fight and struggle for freedom, liberty, equality, and hope.

What I feel right now, just cannot be explained. I mean I can't even put it into words. So many over the centuries, so many in just a few hours and days. So many Americans and people all over the world fighting for ideals either for ill or good---whatever because at some point they believed in it. From just 18 year olds to 40 year olds and veterans long after a specific battle. Our men have done so much for us. And all I can say is a measly thank you, because I'm just too weak to sacrifice what they did?! But this isn't even about me...God, I can't stop crying.

I would like to thank my President for caring. I'd like to thank my President for remembering the sacrifice because God knows the fools before him could careless.

I hope that my President remembers Dover, remembers the men who died at Ft. Hood, remembers so many of those men he visited at Arlington---as I'm sure he will. When he makes his final decisions. I don't want to leave Afghanistan in a mess----our history has done enough damage as it is. However, I can't take any more of this.

And when I hear people die in Afghanistan or Iraq---I have to wonder what for. What the fuck for... What the fuck is going on...At this point I don't care about Bin Laden... don't care if he's dead or alive---I don't want any more of our men dieing over this.

I'm just heart broken...ugh. It's times like this I wasn't in France alone. The American kids here don't give a flying fuck. None of them even knew what day yesterday was. They saw it as a free day and went to get a drink and I wanted to know about my country and my people. I miss you all.

Thank you for this article. It destroyed me, but keeps what's going on in perspective.

Thanks Pirate Smile. K*R*Bm'd.
