What made you open your eyes? What did you see when you finally did open them. Good or bad.
I saw the inherent good in people. I always saw it. Could always find good in someone no matter how seemingly bad they were. I would preach this to my friends.
Then I came back to Iraq. Things changed. I saw people using a child for a shield of sending children with bombs strapped to their chest to front gates. People like that, I don't believe at all, that there is any good in that person. No matter what the cause they are fighting for.
Are you in Iraq now?
My brother is there too.
I can't imagine what it would do to me to see what you have seen.
Come home safe.
I hope you find your forest again soon.
This is why I rarely support wars. I am no pacifist, not 100% anyway, but it has to be proven to me that war is the only resort left before I go along with it.
are you on your way home yet?
