BaByGiRl's blog: "Thoughts"

created on 10/13/2007  |  http://fubar.com/thoughts/b140966
I was just watching the news, and I caught part of a report on Michael Jackson . As we all know, Jackson died the other day. He was an entertainer who performed for decades. He made millions, he spent millions, and he did a lot of things that make him a villain to many people. I understand that his death would affect a lot of people, and I respect those people who mourn his death, but that isn't the point of my rant.

Why is it that when ONE man dies, the whole of America loses their minds with grief. When a man dies whose only contribution to the country was to ENTERTAIN people, the American people find
the need to flock to a memorial in Hollywood , and even Congress sees the need to hold a "moment of silence" for his passing?

Am I missing something here? ONE man dies, and all of
a sudden he's a freaking martyr because he entertained us for a few decades? What about all those SOLDIERS who have died to give us freedom? All those Soldiers who, knowing that they would be asked to fight in a war, still raised their hands and swore to defend the Constitution and the United States of America .

Where is there moment of silence? Where are the people flocking to their graves or memorials and mourning over them because they made the ultimate sacrifice? Why is it when a Soldier dies, there are more people saying "good ridence," and "Thank God for IEDs?" When did this country become so calloused to the sacrifice of GOOD MEN and WOMEN, that they can arbitrarily blow off their deaths, and instead, throw themselves into mourning for a "Pop Icon?"

I think that if they are going to hold a moment of silence IN CONGRESS for Michael Jackson, they need to hold a moment of silence for every service member killed in Iraq and Afghanistan .

They need to PUBLICLY recognize every life that has been lost so that the American people can live their callous little lives in the luxury and freedom that WE, those that are living and those that have gone on, have provided for them.

But, wait, that would take too much time, because there have been so many willing to make that sacrifice. After all, we will never make millions of dollars. We will never star in movies, or write hit songs that the world will listen too. We only shed our blood, sweat
and tears so that people can enjoy what they have.

SGT. Edmund Jo hn Jeffer's last few words were some of the most touching, inspiring and most truthful words spoken since the tragedy of 9/11 - and since our nation went to war. SGT. Jeffers was a strong soldier and talented writer. He died in Iraq on September 19, 2007. He was a loving husband, brother and son. His service was more than this country could ever grasp, but the least you can do for the man who sacrificed his life for you is listen to what he had to say. Listen up and pay attention. To all of the Cindy Sheehans and Al Frankens of the world. To MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS. To all who call themselves Americans. Hope Rides Alone by Eddie Jeffers I stare out into the darkness from my post, and I watch the city burn to the ground. I smell the familiar smells, I walk through the familiar rubble and I look at the frightened faces that watch me pass down the streets of their neighborhoods. My nerves hardly rest; my hands are steady on a device that has been given to me from my government for the purpose of taking the lives of others. I sweat and I am tired. My back aches from the loads I carry. Young American boys look to me to direct them in a manner that will someday allow them to see their families again. And yet, I too, am just a boy. My age not but a few years more than that of the ones I lead. I am stressed, I am scared, and I am paranoid ... because death is everywhere. It waits for me, it calls to me from around street corners and windows. It is always there. There are the demons that follow me, and tempt me into thoughts and actions that are not my own, but that are necessary for survival. I've made compromises with my humanity. I am not alone in this. Miles from me are my brethren in this world, who walk in the same streets ... who feel the same things, whether they admit to it or not. And to think ... I volunteered for this. And I am ignorant to the rest of the world .. or so I thought. But even thousands of miles away, in Ramadi, Iraq, the cries and screams and complaints of the ungrateful reach me. In a year, I will be thrust back into society from a life and mentality that doesn't fit your average man. And then, I will be alone. And then, I will walk down the streets of America and see the yellow ribbon stickers on the cars of the same people who compare our President to Hitler, they say they support us, but they really don't and we know it. I will watch the television and watch the Cindy Sheehans, and the Al Frankens, and the rest of the ignorant sheep of America spout off their mouths about a subject they know nothing about. Freedom for the oppressed doesn't enter their minds. It is their right, however, and it is a right that is defended by hundreds of thousands of boys and girls scattered across the world, far from home. I use the word boys and girls, because that's what they are. In the Army, the average age of the infantryman is nineteen years old. The average rank of soldiers killed in action is Private First Class. People like Cindy Sheehan are ignorant. Not just to this war, but to the results of their idiotic ramblings or, at least, I hope they are. They don't realize its effects on this war. In this war, there are no Geneva Conventions, no cease fires. Medics and Chaplains are not spared from the enemy's brutality because it's against the rules. I can only imagine the horrors a military Chaplain would experience at the hands of the enemy. The enemy slinks in the shadows and fights a coward's war against us. It is effective though, as many men and women have died since the start of this war. And the memory of their service to America is tainted by the inconsiderate remarks on our nation's news outlets. And every day, the enemy changes...only now, the enemy is becoming something new. The enemy is transitioning from the Muslim extremists to Americans and the media who hate the military. The enemy is becoming the very people whom we defend with our lives and they do not realize it. But in denouncing our actions, denouncing our leaders, denouncing the war we live and fight, they are isolating the military from society and they are becoming our enemy. The Congressional Democrats and peace activists like to toss the word 'quagmire' around and compare this war to Vietnam. In a way they are right, this war is becoming like Vietnam . Not the actual war, but in the isolation of country and military. America is not a nation at war. They are a nation with its military at war. Like it or not, we are here, some of us for our second, or third times; some even for their fourth and so on. Americans are so concerned now with politics that it is interfering with our war. Terrorists cut the heads off of American citizens on the Internet. There is no outrage; but an American soldier kills an Iraqi in the midst of battle, and there are investigations, and sometimes soldiers are even jailed for doing their job. It is absolutely sickening to me to think our country has come to this. Our own press ignore our success stories that we take so much pride in. Why are we so obsessed with the bad news? Why will people stop at nothing to be against this war, no matter how much evidence of the good we've done is thrown in their face? When is the last time CNN or MSNBC or CBS reported the opening of schools and hospitals in Iraq ? Or the leaders of terror cells being detained or killed? It's all happening, but people will not let up their hatred of Bush. They will ignore the good news, because it just might show people that Bush was right. This is the only time in history where the media has destroyed a President during a war with the biased reporting. America has lost its will to fight. It has lost its will to defend what is right and just in the world. It has forgotten what we stand for, 'FREEDOM FOR ALL!' The crazy thing of it all is that the American people have not even been asked to sacrifice a single thing. It's not like World War Two, where people rationed food, and turned in cars to be made into metal for tanks. The American people have not been asked to sacrifice anything. Unless you are in the military or the family member of a service member, it's life as usual. The war doesn't affect you. But it affects us. And when it is over, and the troops come home, and they try to piece together what's left of them after their service...where will the detractors who claim to be supporters be then? Where will the Cindy Sheehans be to comfort and talk to soldiers and help them sort out the last couple years of their lives, most of which have been spent dodging death and wading through the deaths of their friends? They will be where they always are, somewhere far away, where the horrors of the world can't touch them. Somewhere where they can complain about things they will never experience in their lifetime; things that the young men and women of America have willingly taken upon their shoulders. We are the hope of the Iraqi people. They want what everyone else wants in life: safety, security, somewhere to call home. They want a country that is safe to raise their children in. Not a place where their children will be abducted, raped and murdered if they do not comply with the terrorists' demand. They want to live on, rebuild and prosper. And America has given them the opportunity, but only if we stay true to the cause, and see it to its end. Where is our American support now? The country must unite in this endeavor. We cannot place the burden on our military alone. We must all stand up and fight, whether in uniform or not. And supporting us is more than sticking yellow ribbon stickers on your cars. It's supporting our President, our troops and our cause. Right now, the burden is all on the American soldiers. Right now, hope rides alone. But it can change, it must change. Because there is only failure and darkness ahead for us as a country and as a people if it doesn't. Let's stop all the political nonsense; let's stop all the bickering; let's stop all the bad news; and let's stand and fight for freedom for all! As of now, hope rides alone. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Eddie's father, David Jeffers, writes: 'I'm not sure how many letters or articles you've ever read from the genre of 'News from the Front,'but this is one of the best I've ever read, including all of America's wars. As I was reading this, I forgot that it was my son who had written it. My emotions range from great pride to great sorrow, knowing that my little boy, (22 years old,) has become this man. He is my hero! 'God bless. ' Though Eddie is no longer with us, you can help to let his voice be heard by sharing his message. God help us if we don't take time to listen!
I have spent the past few years always worrying about someone in Iraq. But this year seems to be the absolute worst. Burrying one friend and almost losing another.When this year is over I can say I was two of my dearest back, David.(Tank MG) and Mario (Judos). But its not over after that I also have a dear friend that is deployed out of here from fort hood. He was just started on his 15 month tour. Its sad really, you get so sick and tired of worrying all the time, but can never stop. There is never any set way to handle it, everyday you watch the news check your e mail, and constantly take your phone everywhere in hopes that you hear that they are ok. Then you get reports that something bad has happened dont know if it rumor or true or even more so if your loved one is dead or alive. Its not easy for our soldiers over seas, but its not easy for us either. So if you see a soldier a friend of a soldier or the gf or wife of a soldier tell them thank you and keep them always in your thoughts and prayers.Its not easy, but someone has to do it. Support the troops. Davids unit just here two days ago ended up getting caught up in a bomb blast in Baghdad. please pray for all the soldiers and their familes...... Fort Carson soldier killed in Baghdad bomb blast A 39-year-old Fort Carson soldier was among two Americans killed in a bomb blast Tuesday in Baghdad, the Army said today. Chief Warrant Officer Robert C. Hammett, of Tucson, Ariz., was assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. The blast ripped through a municipal building in Sadr City before a neighborhood council meeting Tuesday morning. The meeting brought together civilian leaders and officers from the brigade. It was organized to pick a chairman for a district advisory council in the densely populated slum district filled with supporters of militant cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. Lt. Col. Steve Stover, a spokesman for the U.S. military in Baghdad said the bomb appeared to target the main candidate for the post. In an e-mail to The Gazette, Maj. Michael Humphreys wrote, "CW3 Rob Hammett was a great man ... we are all deeply saddened by his death. We currently have three suspects detained, who we believe to have ties to the bombing and we will find the person responsible and bring them to justice." A second soldier, Maj. Dwayne M. Kelley, 48, of Willingboro, N.J., was also killed in the explosion. Hammett is the 33rd soldier with the 3rd Brigade and the 239th with a Fort Carson unit to die in Iraq since the invasion in March 2003. He joined the Army in March 1990 and had been in the 3rd BCT since July 2005. He was serving his third deployment in the Middle East. Hammett had been awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal and Army Commendation Medal
