Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

Dear Senator X,

I am a daughter of a soldier currently returning from Iraq. For my family, months of heartache and waiting have turned to the delicate process of helping Dad to return to civilian life.

But there are thousands of other families for whom the wait has not ended. And now, there is a bill that Mr. Bush says he will sign, should it pass, authorizing more money to continue this war. It's time to stop. You have stated your opposition to this war. Now the time has come to stop the funding and work with the rest of the Senate on a way out of this quagmire.

It is time to stop providing more recruits to the insurgency, and work on sustainable political solutions, and instead concentrate on taking care of the returning veterans, who have given so much and need so much.

Sincerely,

The Fool
