Support our soldiers
My son, Andrew Lenfest, graduated from Decatur High School in 2000. He just celebrated his 21st birthday with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 502nd Infantry Regiment, somewhere in Iraq.
It no longer matters whether youre for the war or against the war. The war is on, its happening now, its an indisputable fact. Protesting the war accomplishes nothing. At this point in time, people must acknowledge the fact that we are currently at war and that this war is not going to end until the current regime in Iraq falls.
Our troops in-country have limited access to CNN and MSNBC. The images of war protestors they see there affect them greatly and negatively. If you want this war to end quickly, and with the least number of casualties, its important to support our troops. If they know that they have the support of their nation, they can concentrate on accomplishing what they went over there to accomplish, instead of worrying about how theyre going to be received when they return home.
You can affect change in the world by supporting our troops in the field and at home. Several times a week, you will find me on the corner of one intersection or another in Federal Way, holding my sign and waving the American flag. These are the images our young soldiers should be seeing on CNN and MSNBC.
If you really want to make a difference, let our troops know that youre behind them all the way. Your positive energy will help save lives far better than blocking intersections and name-calling ever will.
