I found a column this morning by Joseph Galloway, the former senior military correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspapers. He’s also co-author of the book, We Were Soldiers Once … and Young.
Mr. Galloway’s column is entitled “Hang in There America: Competent Leadership is Just 600-plus days Away.” Please read it. The author read my mind.
The armed idealogues in control of our country have done it immense damage. I pray that, in 2008, our democratic process and the American people will rise to the occasion and find a better way. As for now, the leaders of the USA have lost their path in an overpowering and self-righteous fog of vitriol sprayed at those who disagree with them. There is an elephant in our collective living room, and no-one is calling or identifying it–although John Edwards made a start today.
