The Invisible War
First of all I want to thank the YWCA for bringing to Kaua'i the Academy Award nominated documentary, The Invisible War.
As for the hypocritical political apologists, especially Hawai'i Senator Mazie Hirono and Congress-woman Tulsi Gabbard ( I paraphrase, “…gee guys we know it’s bad but we have a ‘relationship’ with the military so please write your Congressman...” this is my offering to you: ten hard whacks between the ears with my trusted shillelagh.
What can we do? All of us have kids and grand-kids and neighbors and friends who have kids and grand-kids see that these most precious possessions are protected from this madness. Keep them out of the hands of the military.
I would especially like to address all Kauai’s-and America’s - wonderful teachers and school Principals: think for a moment, ‘dolled up’ recruiters stalk your halls. The military is recruiting kids in the 4th Grade!!!
I think some bloody red ripe rotten tomatoes splashed across the front of their pristine uniforms might help.
Peace and love...
