On Aug. 4, Sen. Dick Durbin, a member of Gang of Six, was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and stated our nation will always be engaged in wars until the end of time. War means job security for the 600,000 U.S. civilians that provide just about everything our military needs around the world.
After my divorce, although I worked three unsavory jobs a day, I still feel blessed.
My daughter in college mentors troubled teens and my son loves his job helping people get back on their feet as a physical therapist. Children are meant to be raised to have a better life than their parents without the worry of going to war.
A real plan, with thought and determination, to evolve from the war machine obviously cant be done by someone like me but must come from the powers that be. Building communities is much more profitable. Instead of destroying nations, give everybody a rewarding job, a desire to help one another and relief from centuries of loved ones dying in battle.
