  •  One of the most heartbreaking things (14+ / 0-)

    I learned from participating in the I Got The News Today (IGTNT) diaries was coming across in the background stories of each of those killed, some who had joined the military because they had lost their job and couldn't find another one or couldn't find even a first job, so had signed up  for the military.  

    You're absolutely right---the poor, the black, brown, native American, and rural have been doing far too much of the heavy lifting in our wars while the offspring of the wealthy attend their colleges and get ready for that Wall Street job waiting for them as soon as they get that diploma.  It's sickening.

    "A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." - from the prophet Jeremiah
