Afghanistan Through My Eyes

Another day of waiting.

Today an article made the news regarding the suicide and drug addiction rate of our soldiers once they get home. I'm not the least bit surprised. I'm sure it's not that different from all wars, probably just better documented.

I want to help our soldiers. I want to do something for them. I want to listen and tell their thoughts and reveal who they were or who they are or who they want to be.

It's important they want to be. To take what they know and pass it on. Maybe we are finally admitting that war is idiotic. There is no value anymore to territory when we're fighting terrorists whose threat is loss of freedom and trust.

The world has changed and war has changed.
