i like "quotation marks" September 20, 2005

Posted by introspectreangel in politics, war.

i don’t subscribe to the rhetoric or the propoganda on either side. i can’t quote stats, or forward you “secret” emails from a journalist who is in the know about what is going on at the highest levels of our government. i may not be “informed” or “responsible”. i haven’t been to camp casey or to camp reality.

all i know is over 1,900 american soldiers and somewhere between 25,000 and 29,000 civilians are dead. what i don’t know is why. maybe because i choose not to be “informed” by the “liberal media”.

i don’t like death statistics. i don’t like that people are dying in the war, or from natural disasters such as hurricane katrina or january’s tsunami, or from starvation in africa, or starvation in texas for that matter. i am sick to my stomach over the hateful words and accusations that fly back and forth between “conservatives” and “liberals”, when all it comes down to in my world is this: people are dying. people are homeless, and hungry, and heartsick, and grieving. and there is no reason to have blind hatred for anyone or to think that anyone “deserves” pain.
