I feel a sense of horror at the present situation. I feel torn in two with my love of country and my love of other people. Due to my duty in the military, I’ve been posted all over the world. It is a beautiful place. It is a place full of beautiful people. It is a place with people like you and me who want to do what you and I do.
I honestly question whether we are a nation that desires the best for everyone. My sinking feeling is that we don’t. I and probably a lot of people like me grew up naively. However, I am open to the possibility that my educational development is not based on the truth.
I question myself what is the truth. I don’t know. It saddens me that we could be the source of great pain in the world.
