I’m watching Through the Never by Metallica and they just finished playing “One.” I really do love the song and it brings back memories from 1991. While I was in southern Iraq there were a lot of dead vehicles, the fires that had raged through them left the blackened. There were also a lot of dead people. I’ll never forget seeing a guy who was turned into charcoal except for his eyes. They were still white and he looked like he was looking at me. Since then it’s haunted me.
At that moment was the exact point I couldn’t ever again see war as something glorious. Honestly I can’t ever support going to war anywhere or for any reason. All it does in my mind is creates death, destruction, and it ruins lives. You carry the baggage from that back with you so you aren’t the same as when you left.
While I understand it isn’t everyone’s viewpoint it is mine. Yes, I am very anti-war. To tell you the truth I will never change when it comes to that.
