Do the citizens of this country realize that we are still at war? Are people just tired of hearing about it on the news? My sister, bless her heart, never followed the news even when I was enlisted. It saddens me to think that the freedoms that are fought for by the brave are taken for granted by the cowardly. Nobody seems to care unless terror hits their neighborhood. Then, all of a sudden, they are patriotic.
I feel for all of the children, mother's, father's, sister's, brother's, grandma's, grandpa's, husbands, and wives who mourn the loss of their soldier(s). War affects everybody whether they are paying attention or not. Economically, emotionally, mentally, and physically those that are left behind will struggle. This struggle will radiate outwards into society. May God Bless America.
