So the president is in the middle east, they are calling it an “Eight day mideast peace push”. Palestinian Hamas supporters in Gaza City aren’t so welcoming. They are burning pictures of him and our flag.
When I see the pictures of them burning our flag it saddens me. So many of our forefathers fought and died for that flag and what it represents. Religious freedom, democracy, our life. So many people come here seeking the kind of life that our flag represents, in fact people want our way of life so badly they will sneak in by the thousands just to get a taste of the American Dream.
I look at that burning flag and I see our faces, I see the 911 victims, I see my family and friends, I see America. It is an image I won’t soon forget. They want us out of there, they say Bush is a war criminal. Our guys are fighting and dying for the freedoms of their people. The concept is very hard for me to understand, I struggle with it. But I am not sure I want to let terrorism have its way over there, they want to control the world.
It will be very interesting to see the results of this “peace push”, and the upcoming election.
