The past cannot be without the present, and the future is that part of life that is on the horizon.
We live today with the knowledge of what got us here. We hope today and yesterday will lead to a good future, but it takes a lot of thought to get us there.
Life has given us the opportunity to do better later on, or at least maintain that type of life that is pleasurable not only to us but our children. As we remember the mistakes we made, so do we attempt to correct those errors of life so our children will have a better world to live in. I was asked by several readers who know me what my thoughts were about how we use our country to the best advantage.
We have been in wars to keep our freedoms intact, and we have ventured into countries to fight their battles. In the process, we encountered many thousands of deaths and injuries that stay with our soldiers and their families the rest of their lives. We use our power to let other countries know we are there if they need us, and this writer has one thing to say about that.
Mr. President, bring our soldiers home.
We have been in those countries too long and for every day we remain, we lose more of our loved ones who never get to finish taking care of the home front.
I realize in many ways we keep the bad forces out of our country by fighting those wars, and maybe that could be the way to keep them from entering our country and causing unrest here in our beloved America. But there has to be a finishing point. We have stayed too long in Afghanistan. Let’s bring an end to that war and give our girls and boys that much needed trip home.
