I mean, its like this conversatino
Vinny: What's wrong?
Scott: My mother/father/brother/sister died.
Vinny: Well, dying is inevitable. You should have seen it coming.
Scott: Thanks a-hole.
And it is much worse than that because these people are dying in the prime of their lives and FOR NO SUFFICIENTLY GOOD REASON.
Dying is a natural part of life, some die before others. It is obvious. My father died and you don't see me sitting around crying about it anymore. I did when it happened, and I am over it. I knew he was about to die and I braced myself for it.
The families of these soldiers should as well.'
One of my friends in ROTC told me that she knows that she very well will be sent to war and might die. She said people realize the sacrifice they are being asked to make, and your mother or father cannot, and should not stop you from making your own decisions in life.
