I think you are so right about all of this. This part tears at my heart. I have a 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son and I’m torn between what I know is right and needed and raising that kind of American or hiding them and running for the hills along with generations of draft dodgers.
I know it sounds cowardly. But it is love. It makes me want to go back and make my generation stand the fuck up and change the world so my kids didn’t have to be the ones. But of course, humans never see that far out when it counts .
