Some people are asking me what I think about Syria, so here it is.
I'm tired. I'm tired of people watching their children grow up via Facebook and Skype. I'm tired of hearing aman tell his wife 'I love you' followed by 'I missyou' for an entire year. I'm tired of watching the military divorce rate shoot sky-high. I'm tired of overhearing some teenager tell his mom 'I'm going over there." and hearing her cry from 20 feet away. I'm tired of Veterans waiting years to get the help they deserve and need. I'm tired of empty seats at Christmas dinner every other year and anniversary presents in the mail flying overseas. I'm tired of new men and women walking around with invisible wounds that don't heal.
Our flag is a beautiful thing - but I'm tired of seeing it draped over a casket. I'm tired of men and women missing pieces of their bodies, minds and souls.
