I heard of a terrific book. A Mother's Road to Kandahar.
Once I sell a few books of my own, I intend to invest in it.
It is about the difference between supporting the soldiers, and their families, and deploring the war on terror.
Support the troops but not the mission.
In a July 16, 2007 article in The Toronto Star bemoans the losses that families face.
Our beautiful men and women suffer horribly from PTSD. There is much denial. The young men and women who serve believe that they are doing good things, and they are, but there seems to me not to be much hope of enacting real change. It is so sad. I read Christie Blatchford's book, Fifteen Days, and it broke my heart. The soldiers truly believe in their work and the cause for which they fight - but they will not change the conditions, the history, the ongoing civil war that threatens these people without much loss of not only life and limb but mental health.
I have great doubts about this mission. I only hope that the powers-that-be are making the right decisions. I fear not. I fear for the well-being of our soldier's and their families.
