When I was young the very same people calling for war today are the people who spit on our Vietnam Vets for fighting a war that they did not volunteer for.

I understand that the sacrifice can be worth it, but the pain that Katharine experienced could have been hard to bare at times.

As you may know, some of us are compelled beyond our comfort zones.

I think that being a political empath would be the worst. Thank you to Katharine Gun.

My apologies for having to lead a life of pain and sacrifice to inform and protect the rest of us.

It seems that in hindsight, the more reverent I was in my youth towards a peaceful America, the more I ended up backing the warmongers.

Can that be true?
