Telling it like it is
I haven't been too opinionated lately...mostly blog fatigue and the feeling that everyone is saying it much better than I ever could.

However, this particular post hits the Cindy Sheehan situation right on the mark, in my book.

I'm very sorry her son died, just as I am sorry fir the 1,867 other families that have also lost loved ones. But he was a volunteer, and he knew what he was getting into. From what I've read about him, I don't think Casey Sheehan would ever have wanted to be remembered this way. She does a disservice to his memory. And the more she speaks, the more unravelled she becomes.

If you want to know more about who he was, read Blackfive's Someone You Should Have Known.

In my first week as part of the Angels N Camoflauge team, I have sent two packages and one get well card to an injured soldier. In them, I included a Year Of The Veteran Canadian quarter (the one with the poppy in the center) as a token of my appreciation for their service. It felt good to do something, even so small, to show my gratitude.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
