That little website I made has been visited by many, many people in the past few days. All of the feedback has been good so far. Then I checked the guestbook and some coward had filled it with anti-war rhetoric. This individual quoted historical figures and didn't sign with their name, however. They left an email address that is "turntogod@----.com". I was so mad I emailed him/her this letter:
To Whom it May Concern,
It is interesting that you have the nerve to visit my webpage and sign our guestbook with anti-war rhetoric, yet are too cowardly to sign this entry with your name.
I respect your views; I repect your right to express your views even more. Think about it though, nobody opposes war more than a soldier--- they stand to lose the most. It it these very people who protect your everyday liberties, yet on a day-to-day basis you completely ignore them. They ask for pay raises to keep their families out of poverty, and yet a very high percentage of our military qualify for food stamps. America, our wonderful nation, owes a great deal to the military, both past and present. In wartime though, you stand up and notice--- yet you protest against them. How ungrateful. Your behavior is like that of a spoiled child who has everything a person could ask for, yet always whines for more.
Instead of hiding behind your "turntogod" email address, why not stand up and show your face? Opinions shouted from a dark closet are rarely heard. Stand forth, and face the debate. Clearly you are unable to express yourself effectively anyhow, otherwise you wouldn't have simply quoted others in your post.
Lastly, turning this war into a religous opportunity is deplorable. This war isn't about religion, despite what your friends in Iraq like to propogate to the citizens. It's people like you who fuel the fire Saddam has created.
With pride I sign my name,
OK, now I respect that everyone has differing viewpoints, but I just found this guestbook entry to be downright disrespectful. Naturally, I erased the guestbook entry and prohibited anyone from that computer from signing it again.
Thanks for letting me blow off some steam, I feel better already!!
