Watching the Concert for Valor and wondering why 'fortunate one' was played. Ain't that a war protest song? Anyway I sometimes 'regret' not being more patriotic. It's not that I'm not moved by the anthem, and other songs inspire me. I love to hate Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA. Maybe it's being marched to it in the wilting TX heat in basic training. I do wish we were doing more. The VA disturbs me; we owe so much to our vets. I wish patriotism was taught more, or is it basic decency?
I shouldn't be watching and fearful for the backpacks I think I saw.
Be well, remember our veterans and those who serve still.
