Thank you, Natalie,

Let's applaud Ms. Schroeder for her insight and perspective.

AS we gather to celebrate our veterans, let commit ourselves to creating less reasons for such veterans. Then, take up a collection for First Class tickets home for every service person in IRAQ. We certainly do not need to prolong another dumb-ass WAR by another dumb-ass Texan (who is actually from New Haven Connecticut).

Celebrate one world, in peace, with humanity, and justice for all,
