Marine strikes nerve with Facebook post.
I added this photo and if you don't agree please take me off from your friends list. This is what American men and women face daily for what you believe or don't believe as your god given rights as an American. These men and women forward deployed world wide regardless of politicians greed, agenda go forth and do their duty for what most see as poverty or as a sub par job. While you enjoy your fishbowl the world you live is what was built upon the walls of mens bone and courage, their blood and sacrifices. War is not some glamor movie, it is what you see in this picture. torn flesh and death, the media both foreign and domestic shoved inside your face and AO and expected to the face of right, though everything wrong shows behind you. Death and cowardice is how you are presented each day and we as American forgot. We sleep soundly because the problem is not at home, it is 6000 plus miles away. War changes men, scars their souls and burns items deep into places we wish never to return. We live with a saddened regret that we didn't do enough or gave enough of our souls because of those men behind us. We live with this regardless how much we give of ourselves, our careers, our bodies. We try to forget and some do, but most never will, they haunt and relive each day we are in our lives away from the smoke and chaos. While you enjoy a stressful day bitching about how this or that does or does not work, the bullshit doesn't matter. For us what you see in this picture is the violent eruption of what we live with. Again if you dont agree, unfriend, unfollow and enjoy knowing you are nothing more than a lifeless sheep. You will be one of the first the wolves devour and while their will never be enough sheep dogs to kill all the wolves, look at this picture and let it settle. The man standing over the slain is the constant, he is injured and his loved ones are to far to touch and call, his friends are killed yet he barrels forward to stay watch and protect what you and I enjoy. He watches over the wall and this picture, the blood soaked camies and fallen Solider are unable to fight others readily fill those gaps and harden those weakness. I am angered and saddened all at once to be an American because I know that for most they dont care and never will, they are not effected by what this picture invokes and to them its just some solider doing what they are supposed to do. Im angered because Americans are so utterly blind to whats out there on the other side and I want to share that honest truth with you. I want to allow you to see that. Again if you dont like it or my views I will not miss you, I will not care. Godspeed, Semper Fi and Sua Sponte.
