In our world of triumphs, who have we left behind? Let’s not reenact our disgraceful homecoming of our Vietnam vets. Just as in the past, we put our selfish interests ahead of what’s really right. We have large parades for winning sport teams, closing entire cities down, but fail to recognize the men and women who placed their lives in jeopardy so we as Americans can participate in these freedoms.
Vets, on your homecoming, I will be proud, and I will be ashamed as well.
