    I’m sorry but I didn’t even make an effort to watch your film. I have too many memories & nightmares of the Vietnam War. There’s an anger deep inside me that will never go away. Our country is broken & I’ve lost my respect for our government and leaders. It’s seldom a matter of voting for the best man these days but choosing the least of two evils. I respect our sons & daughters serving in the military but don’t celebrate Veteren’s day just one day a year.

    Sandra is so right. We need to retrieve the values of our forefathers and the ones our veterans fought and died for–yet we are letting them slip away without so much as a fight. What are we doing? And Why? Freedom is not really free–it must be held on too tightly lest it slip slowly away.
