the faster we realize it really is time to rise up, the faster we stop feeling numb.
numbness is born of hopelessness. the feeling that you have no responsibility because you subscribed to a position of safety.

sorry to sound so callous, but you want advice? you feel bad, not numb, you think you're numb because you can't decide who to blame. we all would feel that way if it was our friend.

i advise you to organize and vocalize.

as long as people don't feel the need or ability to talk about what's wrong. then they wont. and nothing will be done.

you want your friends death to mean something? then make yourself accountable for the fact he died for a life that most certainly included your friendship! and consider that someone felt it nessisary to send him to that fate. consider the reasons.

and then consider your stance, and feel free to mourn the whole way. because you friend would not want to be forgotten. tho I think perhaps he would certainly appreciate if you tried to make a difference because of what he sacrificed and lost to make a difference for you.
and you gotta make it your own way.

and im sorry if i don't know you well, but thats the best advice i think a man can give.

I'm not being a dick, I'm being defensive.
Especially since I know someone killed in action as well.
I don't believe half the shit I read in OTD.


Condolences.  I know a guy that's still there and knew a guy there:

12/28/03 Blanco, Ernesto M. Captain 28 U.S. Army 1st Bat., 504th Parachute Inf. Reg., 82nd Airborne Div. Hostile - hostile fire - IED attack Fallujah (NE of)

He was a devout christian. He was still a virgin. He was engaged to be married. He was the only one that could carry his family name on.

With the upcoming attack on Fallujah, there might be two that I knew over there...


:sad:

my nieghbor at my old house got injured in Iraq. he now lost sight in one of his eyes and his hand is all fucked up and at one point had like a hole in it or something like that. What happened was Some bitch came up to one of the soldiers and apparently had a grenade or something and shrapnel hit him i think

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Be strong man. Reach out to his family - I'm sure they are feeling immense pain right now. Hang in there man - if you need someone to talk to, PM me. I'd talk all night - I have two friends over in Iraq now and I worry.

I'm sorry that your friend died in the neoconservatives' fraudent war. And to everyone else reading, chances are that we'll all know someone who dies or is mamed as time goes on and the fighting continues. I hope we can come together and stop this madness.

peace.

I know quite a few people who were sent to Iraq. Luckily, no one I know personally has died.

Hang in there, pal.
