I get upset every time someone accuses me on not caring about the troops or taking them for granted, simply because I don't agree with the war! Wait, is this post out of the blue, not really. I'm on a message board with a bunch of my South Texas h.s. classmates and well.
So, I pose the question, how many members of your family, relatives, conocidos, acquaintances, vecinos, or just random folks do you know who are serving in this war?!
The reason I'm asking (and it's kind of a rhetorical question, but feel free to answer), is because I bet you my bottom dollar I know more folks over there than the President, or Donald Rumsfeld, etc.
This is why I get pissed off when people tell me I take the troops for granted. C'mon, one of my closest friends/college roommate is in Iraq right now. Do folks really think this doesn't affect me? Ugghhh, I reckon I'm posting this out of frustration.
