This goes out the all the Irish people out there.
Both my Great-grandfathers fought for a great cause, a cause that
would liberate Ireland and its people. Not from tyranny, but so

killing your fellow man. Sure, we all want our country back, but
blowing up buildings won't get you the attention you
Be REAL men, walk up to them, shake their hand, and talk. Talk,
thats all I ask you to do, that's all I ask you to try.
Make my Great-grandfathers proud.
Honour the Fallen
