This is what I write... As I sit here and think, of all the things I have done. Of all the battles fought, all the wars won. I stand for the freedoms, that we have held so dear. As we send boys to war, families are left here. No matter where you go, no matter where you look. You will find the future, hiding in a book. Is it 1776? 1984? Do we cross the boarders, as we ask for more. Can you understand the beaches, they truly are nice. Unless your sleep is disturbed, by shouting and lights. As war is outbreaking, in more than one place. My question is this, are we ready for what we face? Freedoms taken, speech to be destroyed. Become an "enemy combatant" and become deployed. Speak out about the Government, proud and true. Tell the truth behind the lies, that is what I do. Placing freedom on the line, securities could be sorted. Hey maybe if I upset them enough, I can even get water boarded. Sounds like a good time, vacation paid for. Its not just about GitMo, there is defiantly more. All that has been hidden, all of the lies. Another soldier sent home, as one more dies. They stand and fight for what they believe, no one ever will blame them. Bad mouthing those girls and boys, destroy them once again. Never give up the 1st Amendment right, stand and believe. The future is that of what our minds, can truly conceive. Now that you have read this, I hope you see. I write to protect our freedoms, lives, soldiers, and liberties. All rights reserved Aingealicia

That was beautiful. I'm with you all the way. Someone has to tell the truth when others stay tucked away in their safety net of lies. Soldiers deserve to come home to a proud country, not to a government that acts as though they don't exist. 'Until They All Come Home...'
