At home we are still circulating symbols and photos and poems to show our support for the troops, by now as a country we are getting fully immersed in our sentimentalism as patriotism of the highest order...to do less is to be called unpatriotic, a protester, a left wing liberal, and a few other choice names. No problem, I think, it's entirely understandable..after all the families with loved ones over there need to cope in their own unique way. And so do I with my own loved ones over there serving in Iraq. I can feel the sentimentality, the loyalty, the patriotism, the pride of country and for exactly that reason look on the President's actions as suspect..
