A from my high school was sent off to Iraq. He got shot in the head, he's never coming back. I didn't really know him, but I knew a lot of , who sold themselves as soldiers, whose fate may be like his. It makes me think of high school, and the who walked the halls. I wonder how many of them, went off to heed the call. Who closed their eyes so quickly and bought the myth of war. The promises of honor, or a heart that beats no more. I think about that hallway that was right outside the gym. I think about that doorway, there were students coming in.
Right by the cafeteria, where lunch was everyday. Where the army had their table, and gave free pens away. I saw those pens a lot, "be all that you can be." Murder a couple families, and we'll pay for your degree. They always mentioned money, as if soldiers came home rich. They tricked you into killing, and you fell for it. I remember many times when i saw that table there. Now I curse myself to think that I never made it clear. That this is not normality, it's not another trend, It's soldiers in my hallway, murdering my friends. Now i say it loudly, wishing i was there. "Fuck you, recruiters.” Stop targeting my peers. It's not my war to fight in, and neither is it yours! You're sending like me to die, in other peoples wars. So stop and think my friends, next time you see marines, talking to your classmates, think just what it means. Soldiers are not heroes. Let's make that clearly known. They were like you and me, whose hearts and minds were overthrown. Don't be scared of nothing. Please take this advice. If they start talking to your classmates, stand your ground and fight. Don't be fooled by fables, that the textbook authors typeTheir wars are fought for profit, not for human rights! - Ryan Harvey lovequotes love exercises hot crypto cryptocurrency invest investor investing bitcoin california miamibeach photography photooftheday yoga travelling traveller blogger beautifuldestinations fitnessmotivation fun funny model modeling modellife volunteerism yoga funnymemes loveyourself
