I told her about how infuriating it is to be working on an anti-war campaign for an 18 year long war.
I’m just god damn sick of hearing “thanks.” What the hell are we even thankful for? The fact that young people keep volunteering to serve in a war with no end?
I hate it. A couple weeks ago, I heard three Marines had died in Afghanistan. I worried for a few days about it being someone I knew. I was actually upset.
I hate how much we glorify the killing. I hate how we build this mythology around military service that demands war as solution to everything.
