This is just food for thought. Ya know I don't get political on ya...at least not very often, but living with a Viet Nam vet even I tend to forget what he and others in that era did for us, what they lived through, what the conditions were for them. And here we still are in another war which is as unpopular as the Nam war was. So...read on.
We need to show more sympathy for these people.
They travel miles in the heat.
They risk their lives crossing a border.
They don't get paid enough wages.
They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do.
They live in crowed conditions among a people who speak a different language.
They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day every day.
I'm not talking about illegal Mexicans; I'm talking about our troops!
Doesn't it seem strange that many members of Congress and are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegal's, but don't support our troops?
