I was in class today writing again and (the class) started talking about Memorial Day and the young dead men that came from our community. 25 people directly from our naval base (sea bees) were in the newspaper with their dates of death. All except two died after George Bush landed on the aircraft carrier and said "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED". 22 young, minority, unhealthy men. From ages 19-26 died for the wealthy, old, white gentlemen that sent us to war. (At this time not one person in the House of Representatives had a family member of their own in the armed forces.) I'm not saying we shouldn't have gone to war that's up to you and your whole moral standing. But I’m saying as humans. We have not taught ourselves to rise against violence yet. It’s amazing how we can blast people off into space, and how I can talk to someone half way around the world or even in the next room by pushing buttons on a box not even having to yell. And how we can genetically engineer tomatoes to grow until their as big as your grandma's butt. But we still can't figure out how to solve our problems without violence. In other countries there are nuclear bombs a lot of them to. And it scares the fuck out of me knowing that at anytime, if someone doesn’t get what they want millions of people will die. If you saw the new Indiana Jones and the simulation test screen it shows a fake community being demolished. We will burn slowly and painfully, our children will melt, and our shadows will be burned into the ground. If we launch a nuclear bomb people will die in a way NO ONE should. 82% of Americans want our troops to come home. 82% we live in a democracy and 82% of the people want our troops back. Do you think the head haunchos give a fuck what we really think? And back to the violence it starts within us. PEACE. If we as Americans cannot start excepting each other for our differences, and if we don’t stop, picking the things out that make us so different we are fucked as a species. The human species is screwed if we can’t do that.
