I am very sad today. I have cried. For the first time I have cried over an election. Not because McCain did not win the election. But because I have realized that it is apparently ok to be dishonest. It is ok to have a questionable past and to even hide parts of it. It is ok to lie and tell people what they want to hear because not only is it ok but you will be rewarded for it. Because you will not be judged by your true character but by what you tell people you are. Being a war hero apparently doesn't matter. Making the right decisions when no one is looking doesn't matter. People think you're "milking" the fact that you were a POW. How insulting to all those that serve and have served for this country. Christian family values lost. True American spirit and values lost. And yet, my husband has to, at times, put his life in jeopardy for people who probably don't even appreciate it or care. It makes me sad.
