Recently I've thought about my country's wars. I oppose them with my heart and voice, but I don't march in the streets and I still pay my taxes. And I still, on occasion, pledge allegiance to the flag....
(do other countries have a rite like our pledge of allegiance?)
I hate what my country is doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. When I see anti-American words or actions, I want to say "not me, I'm don't support USA's actions.". But do I have a leg to stand on?
Millions of Americans oppose the wars. We are all painted by the same brush.
My country is tarnishing my name.
Like the hikers.
