The True Meaning Of Memorial Day
|I ask you to view the video below, and remember those who have died as a result of Bush's War including those who, like Jessica Rich, died in a "non-combat" situation. This was filmed at Camp Casey/Colorado Springs as Jessica was preparing to enter a treatment facility for PTSD . She was killed in a head-on collision and had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit. Friends say she turned to alcohol to forget her memories of the time she spent in Iraq.
Many will say doesn't deserve our sympathy or our attention, and that she brought it on herself. I can't agree with that logic. There are so many like Jessica who after giving their all in Iraq, returned home to an uncaring neglectful Government and a disinterested population. |
