US Army Private. July 21, 2010

I would just like to say this website is a safe-haven for me when I thought there was none. I recently joined the National Guard because I was looking to serve the people in my community, state, and country. After President Obama’s campaign two years ago in which he criticized supporters of these illegal wars I thought the winds of change were coming. I was naive to think so. I was lied to. We were all lied to. Now I’m facing the possibility of having to go all the way overseas to kill and destroy another country. This is wrong and it makes me physically sick at night. It also makes me sick knowing that there are people out there who still support these wars. I would just like to thank you for listening and for giving people like me a safe-haven to come to.
