Senator Has No Clue ~
I was listening to Sen Casey (PA – D) speak about not having any idea where our soldiers get the courage they have, especially our wounded who if they could, would go back to Iraq. This is the email I sent to him:
I am not one of your constituents but I’m the mother of a soldier.
Just having heard you speaking on the senate floor about the wounded soldiers you have met and their desire to go back to Iraq, I felt I had to write you.
You stated that you had no idea where they get the courage they have, that no matter how badly wounded they are, to want to go back to be with their brothers and sisters in arms.
I’m afraid that is the problem with the Democratic party. You truly have no idea what makes a soldier a soldier.
You try to make the families of the American Soldier, victims. I listen to you speak about all the hardships the families go through. I rarely hear you speak of the PRIDE we have for our soldiers.
We are willing to make sacrifices because we believe in a greater good. And we believe in our soldiers. Apparently, you do not.
Cindy Sheehan does not speak for most of us. And never will.
Please stop insulting the integrity of our soldiers that we love and have so much pride in their choice to step up and do something huge in the service of this country. Please stop using our Fallen Soldiers as political fodder.
